"Some people like to marinade the prawns in similar recipes for up to an hour but I find that the citrus juice starts to cook them and can make them a bit tough. I say 2-4 servings but it depends how large the prawns are. I like to double the sauce and pour it over noodles or rice. I found the original recipe on the internet, all on it's own, no poster's name, nothing so I could not give any credits"

Soo delicious, i just did a dozen to go with the rest of our dinner. we loved them and i will be making them again. I had no vermouth and since there was aready orange juice in the sauce i used Grand Marnier. The timing was perfect, lovely tender , so much flavour, thanks for posting.
