1 c
olive oil
1 Tbsp
dried oregano, crumbled
1 Tbsp
dried thyme, crumbled
2 tsp
freshly grated lemon zest
2 tsp
coarse salt
2 tsp
freshly ground black pepper
24

Step-By-Step

1In a large bowl stir together oil, herbs, zest, salt and pepper, add the prawns, and toss to coat well. Let the prawns marinate, covered and chilled, for at least 1 hour or overnight.

2Stir in the lemon juice, let the mixture stand at room temperature for 30 minutes, and drain the prawns in a fine sieve.

3Grill the herb-coated prawns on a rack set about 4 inches over glowing coals for 3 minutes on each side, or until they are cooked through. Serve with lemon wedges.
