Licky-Sticky Prawns

asks us for a 'practical' poem this week

A Rhyming Recipe

Here in Oz a shrimp's a prawn and cilantro's coriander
Keep that in mind when you cook this tasty dish!
The name's don't really matter for it's the taste that counts
And the taste of this is brilliant as you wish!
It's a perfect meal for summer nights (it's winter where I am)
And the prawns look lovely laid out on the plate.
It's a quick and easy recipe that anyone can make
But your guests are sure to label it as 'Great!'
Marinate the prawns in the honey for a while,
Covering with cling-wrap helps a lot.
Then add the garlic, oil and soy and marinate some more,
The lovely flavour's sure to hit the spot.
Skin and chop the mushrooms, cut the onion into chunks,
Also the peppers, one size here 'fits all'.
Thread the lot on skewers, but watch out for the drips!
Some from the marinade are bound to fall!
Your kebabs are set for grilling, with some extra marinade;
Cook them till they curl up at the edges,
Then serve them any way you like, with bread or rice or plain,
With salads or with lots of crispy veggies.
The honey adds a yummy sticky surface to the prawns,
So be sure you  have some napkins standing by!
There'll be lots of finger-licking when you serve these lovely treats!
And your reputation's bound to go sky-high!


3tbsp honey
2tbsp soy sauce
1tsp of sesame seed oil
1 clove of garlic, crushed

175g  prawns, cooked and peeled
125g  mushrooms
1/2  onion
1 red pepper



Quite arresting, the deck-chair slats,
A nice resting-place for passing cats!
All sea-sidy  (and by the sea),
Some restaurant-owner's fantasy!
Hardly comfy! All stiff but sloping!
As a site for leisure it isn't coping.
But a leafy shade has begun to crawl
Over the slats to soften them all.
Cushions would offer a sense of rest.
But leafy shadows are doing their best!

Rinkly I am drooling! I have to try this - maybe with langoustines or gambas!

Recipes are the epitome of practical, which your poem was - and then some. Delightful. It reminded me of when I learned that cilantro and coriander were the same.
