Very good! I doubled the marinade and used made kabobs of mushrooms, red onion, and bell pepper. Two suggestions....a tad less pepper, maybe only 1 1/2 tsp....it was very peppery. Also, if you marinate veggies, I wouldn't marinate mushrooms too long....mine absorbed the marinade like a sponge and were very lemony although the other veggies were not. Will be making this often!

Thought this recipe was really just OK. This is not a recipe that I would make again for family or guests. There just wasn't much of an extraordinary taste to the prawns.

This is a very tasty recipe. Be sure to get LARGE shrimp and don't overcook them. I got shrimp that were too small and my husband grilled them for too long and they ended up dry. The shrimp still had a very good taste. I plan to try it again with the large shrimp and a timer!

Excellent! I used Worcestershire sauce, because steak sauce (I was thinking like A-1) seemed too thick. I added chunks of bell pepper, onion, zucchini, and whole cherry tomatoes to the skewers. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with Creole or Cajun seasoning mix.

Wonderful!! My son said this was the best homemade dinner he ever had. I served these with some rice pilaf, a big green salad and sour dough bread. I used fresh minced garlic, and the only thing I added to the marinade was some red pepper flakes as we like things a little spicy. We basted the kabobs with the marinade as they grilled, & poured the garlic and pepper that had settled to the bottom over at the end - Yum!!

I thought these were just OK. They maybe better if you marinate them for longer than 20 minutes. I thought they were rather bland.
