Grilled Prawns with Kiwi Salad
From Dorothy McNett's Recipe book at www.dorothymcnett.com. These prawns can be grilled outside over medium coals, or easily cooked in a heavy bottomed saute pan or stove-top grill pan. It is the presentation of the prawns served with diced kiwi and cheese over a bed of fresh greens that blends so perfectly with Viognier.
1 pound medium to large prawns
Peel and devein the prawns. Try to leave the tail intact as it will help in the turning and in the presentation, especially if cooked on your outside barbecue. Combine the soy sauce, honey, zest of the lemon and some pepper in a bowl and toss in the prawns. Allow to marinate about 30 minutes or more. If cooking in a saute pan or a wok, heat over medium heat, adding the prawns and the marinade. Cook and stir only until prawns turn pink and curl up. Do not overcook! Set aside while you prepare the kiwi and cheese mixture.
