Grilled Prawns

Featured by Calera Wine Company.

Ingredients

2/3 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
1 teaspoon dried thyme, crumbled
2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup dry white wine (Chardonnay)
24 prawns or jumbo shrimp (shells left on)
Bamboo skewers
Mesclun greens
Lemon wedges as an accompaniment

Instructions

In a large bowl, stir together all the marinade ingredients, add the prawns, and toss them to coat well. Let the prawns marinate, covered and chilled, for 30 minutes or up to 1 hour; drain the prawns in a fine sieve; reserve the marinade. Thread 3 or 4 prawns on each bamboo skewer. Boil the reserved marinade in a medium saucepan until reduced by half. Adjust the seasonings to taste. Grill the prawns on a rack set about 4 inches over glowing coals for 3 minutes on each side, or until they are cooked through. Divide the prawns among 8 plates layered with greens, spoon sauce over prawns and serve them with the lemon wedges.
