Citrus-Marinated Shrimp on the Barbie

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), adds another layer of Aussie flavor.

Cooking tip

Test Kitchen Tips:

•If using wooden skewers, soak thoroughly in water for at least 30 minutes before threading with shrimp and vegetables. This prevents them from burning when on the grill.

•Peppers can be red, yellow or orange bell peppers or a combination of them.
