Spot Prawns & Marinade

2 pounds large Alaska Spot Prawns

1/2 cup IPA beer

2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard

1/4 cup minced garlic

1/4 cup freshly squeezed grapefruit juice

1/4 cup vegetable oil

2 teaspoons minced grapefruit zest

1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes

Citrus Relish

1 large ruby red grapefruit

1 navel orange

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons finely minced shallot

2 tablespoons thinly sliced chives

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


Marinate prawns: Peel the shrimp leaving the tail on. Skewer each prawn on a small wooden cocktail fork, curling into a circle. Place in a pan and refrigerate.

In a bowl whisk together ale, mustard, garlic, grapefruit juice, vegetable oil, grapefruit zest, and chili. Pour over shrimp. Cover and refrigerate. Marinate for a minimum of 12 hours or up to 1 day.

Relish: Supreme the grapefruit and orange, catching juices in a bowl. Coarsely chop supremes and add to bowl. Mix in lemon juice, olive oil, shallot, chives, and salt.

To cook and serve: Preheat grill to medium-high. Oil grill and season prawns to taste with kosher salt and cracked black pepper. Cook prawns for 1 to 2 minutes per side or until cooked through. To serve, top each prawn with some of the relish. Garnish with chives.
