3 tablespoons soy sauce, sweet (ketjap manis), or 1 1/2 tablespoons each regular soy sauce and molasses
1 tablespoon lime juice, fresh
1 1/2 pounds shrimp, jumbo, or spot prawns, shells left on but deveined and butterflied


1. Preheat the grill to high.

2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Remove from the heat and stir in the sweet soy sauce and lime juice. Brush the cut sides of the prawns with the mixture.

3. When ready to cook, oil the grill grate. Arrange the prawns, cut sides down, on the hot grate and grill until lightly browned on that side, about 2 minutes. Brush the shell sides with the butter mixture and turn the prawns over, using tongs. Continue to grill until lightly browned on the second side and firm and pink inside, 2 to 4 minutes, brushing once or twice with the butter mixture.

4. Transfer the prawns to serving plates or a platter, pour over any remaining butter mixture, and serve immediately.
