Prawns With Chimichurri Sauce
2 To 10 cloves garlic, peeled

And coarsely chopped

1 Red jalapeno pepper, stemmed

Seeded and coarsely chopped

1/4 cup Fresh oregano leaves

1 cup Fresh parsley leaves

1/4 cup Red-wine or sherry vinegar

1/2 cup Olive oil

1/4 tsp Salt

1 1/2 lb Jumbo prawns

1. Prepare the garlic. Traditionally this is a garlicky sauce, but the amount of garlic used would be according to personal taste. 2. Combine the garlic and jalapeno in a food processor and mince finely. Add the oregano and parsley and pulse to a fine chop. Add the vinegar, olive oil and Salt, processing until smooth and emulsified. (The sauce can be used immediately; or pour into a jar, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.) 3. Remove about 1/3 cup of the sauce to use as a baste for the prawns. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill. Place prawns on a well-oiled grill, 4 to 6 inches from the source of heat. Baste and cook about 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until prawns are pink and cooked through. 4. Serve with the remaining sauce on the side. Note: The sauce can also be used with beef, chicken or pork.
