16 very large prawns, deveined in shell, raw
Extra-virgin olive oil, about 125ml for brushing
Coarse salt and black pepper
2 lemons, halved
1) Preheat griddle or griddle pan over high heat.

2) Butterfly shrimp by slicing almost through lengthwise, but leave shell on prawns, this will keep the prawns tender while cooking over such high heat.

3) Brush prawns with oil, season with salt and pepper and griddle 2 minutes on each side, until shells are hot pink and prawns are opaque. Place lemons on griddle during the last minute. The heat will release the juice from the lemons.

4) To serve, squeeze grilled lemon wedges over prawns.
