Grilled vodka prawns

We had a cook out on Memorial Day and I made sweet spicy pork chops with grilled vodka prawns. I didn't make sides 'cos we are both sort of on a diet :P

Recipe (for 2):
16 large shrimps shelled & deveined(I used frozen ones)
1 clove garlic (smashed and finely minced)
1/2 tbsp lemon juice (I only had bottled type, you can use fresh squeezed lemon/lime juice)
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tbsp citrus vodka
1/2 tbsp "sweet & sour" mixer (or you can just use lemon/lime/orange juice or magarita mixer)
1/2 tbsp parsley flakes (fresh ones are even better)
1/4 tsp paprika
Dash of salt/pepper (to taste)
5-6 bamboo skewers (soak in water for a couple of hours)

Marinate prawns for an hour
Thread them on skewers
Grill until they turn nice pinkish red and curled up (I put a sheet of aluminium foil over the flame and lightly sprayed with oil before placing the skewered prawns on the foil)

The prawns don't take long to cook. If your flame is very big....you can put the skewers on the side not too near the flames. The bamboo skewers might burn a little....be careful!
