Citrus-Marinated Shrimp on the Barbie

Recipe by  

"Australians love seafood and grilling. Grilled shrimp (known as prawns) with a citrus base is a favorite, especially for beach barbecues. Coriander, both ground and in its leaf form (otherwise known as cilantro), is used to add another layer of Aussie flavor."

Wasn't much flavor. I marinated for an hour and didn't really even notice.

I made this for my husband and he said it was good, but he wasn't wild about it. I did make kabobs with the mix though and the veggies turned out awesome!

I marinated the shrimp for 2 1/2 hours and didn't get a lot of flavor from the marinade. This was just ok.

Oh my goodness, this shrimp is amazing! I only had a little over 1 pound of shrimp and increased the cilantro to 1/4 cup. I let the shrimp marinate for 8 hours and only grilled them (separate from the veggies) for 2 minutes on each side because they had already "cooked" in the marinade. My family and in-laws LOVED this. I will definitely make this again.
