Combine all ingredients except prawns in large bowl, mix. Add prawns, marinate over night or for three hours, turning several times.
Remove prawns. Pour marinate into saucepan and bring to boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Thread prawns lengthwise onto soaked skewers and place on ungreased baking sheet. Broil for about two to three minutes each side, basting with marinade.
You can also use your BBQ or pan pry fry the prawns without the skewers and serve.
