Ingredients

  • ¼

    cup butter

  • 1

    tablespoon olive oil

  • 1

    tablespoon sweet chili sauce

  • 2

    tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 2

    teaspoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice

  • ½

    lemon, sliced with peel

  • 4

    large cloves garlic, minced

  • 1

    teaspoon chopped cilantro

  • 1

    teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 1

    teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1

    teaspoon Tabasco sauce (or your favorite hot sauce)

  • 1

    pound cooked prawns with tails (peeled and deveined)

Directions

In a large saucepan over medium heat, simmer butter, olive oil, chili sauce, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, lemon, garlic, cilantro, red pepper flakes, oregano and Tabasco until well blended. Remove from heat and let cool. Place sauce in a zip-lock bag; add shrimp and seal, then mush it around with your hands to coat the shrimp. Refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight. Serve with small bowls of extra marinade for dipping if desired. (make a new batch of marinade, don't use what's left over from marinating the shrimp.)
