who is responsible for bringing this recipe to notice....Joe, Marilyn or Marge but it is so good! I used Udon noodles cause I had some that I want to use up and a spinach salad with sliced hard boiled eggs, Mandarin oranges and honey mustard dressing. Fantastic!

To make Lemongrass Sauce: Simmer all ingredients for 1 minute Pour halve the sauce over prawns and let marinade for 1 hour. Reserve remaining sauce to drizzle over grilled prawns.

To make Garlic Noodles:

Place Noodles in boiling water and boil for 2 minutes.
While noodles are still hot add seasoned butter and toss well.
Add Kosher Salt and Black Pepper to taste.

Grill Prawns flesh side down, 1 to 3 minutes.
Flip Prawns and cook another 1 to 3 minutes until prawns are just done.

Cautions that there may be too much oil.
