Grilled Mustard King Prawns

Marjolaine sent me this fantastic recipe two days ago, and I took advantage of the farmer market's week end to try it out.

You will need for 2 persons:
- King Prawns (10-12 per person or thereabout)
Add Image- 4 tblspn dijon mustard
- 3 cloves garlic
- Salt and pepper
- 4 tblspn oil (I used grapeseed oil)

Mustard sauce:
Mix the mustard, salt, pepper and finely chopped garlic, then add the oil little by little, keep mixing so as to obtain an emulsion (like a mayonnaise). If the emulsion does not hold firm, add a bit of rice vinegar and keep mixing.Preparation of the king prawns:
With a knife, cut verticaly through the body of each prawn, and devein. spread the middle of the cut prawn and deposit a teaspoon of sauce in it.
Line up the prawns in an oven dish, sauced side up.
Cooking:
Place the dish under the grill on max for about7 minutes, turn the prawns around and cook again for up to 7 minutes depending on the strength of your grill

Then eat whilst it's hot! The sauce produced is incredible, it is definitely finger licking good!
