Recipe and photos by

The Albion River Inn
Mendocino Coast, California

17_room_View.jpgThis is my favorite dinner entree at The Albion River Inn on the Mendocino coast.  It is almost impossible not to order this every time I am there for dinner.  They usually serve it over a bed of Jasmine rice.  It’s simple, yet packed with flavor! 

Yield:  2 pounds of prawns should serve approximately 5 people 


Ingredients for Prawn Marinade:  

  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 2 tbl. garlic, minced
  • 1 tbl. horseradish
  • 2 tbl. ginger, minced
  • 2 tbl. cilantro, chopped
  • fresh cracked pepper to taste



Combine all marinade
ingredients in food processor or blender. 
Marinate the prawns for up to 
2 hours.  Grill or broil prawns
until just done, and sauce with Cilantro-Garlic Butter (below).



Ingredients for Cilantro-Garlic Butter: 

  • ½ tbl. peanut oil
  • 1 tbl. garlic, minced
  • 1 tbl. shallots, minced
  • 1 oz. white wine
  • 1 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1 oz. heavy cream
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 2 tbl. butter
  • 1 tbl cilantro, chopped



Lightly brown garlic and
shallots in peanut oil, add white wine and pineapple juice and reduce
slightly.  Add cream and lime juice
and reduce until almost dry.  Add
butter and cilantro off of the heat. 
Serve over marinated grilled shrimp.

  1. Love to look at the pix of your recipes, and of course, how good they taste! Love the Albion River Inn and the Restaurant there. I live in Montana, but try to make the trek to the CA coast at least once per year, and you are definitely in the top 3 of my favorite places to eat in California.
