900g large prawns, peeled and deveined (see note)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium yellow onion, small-diced
20g minced fresh parsley
20g minced fresh basil
1 tsp dry mustard
2 tsp Dijon mustard
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
60ml good olive oil
1 lemon, juiced
1) Combine all the ingredients and allow them to marinate for 1 hour at room temperature or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.

2) Skewer the shrimp. I use 3 or 4 shrimp on a 30cm skewer for dinner. Heat a grill with coals and brush the grill with oil to prevent the shrimp from sticking. Grill the shrimp for only 1 1/2 minutes on each side.

Note: I leave the tails on when I'm peeling the shrimp.
