Karen's Fabulous Prawns

My good friend Karen brought this hors d' oeuvre to a party a number of years ago.  I immediately asked for the recipe and have taken the dish to many subsequent gatherings.  It is Soooooo Simple and that's what makes it fabulous......

Karen's Fabulous Prawns

1/4 c. Italian Parsley
1/4 c. Minced Shallot
1/4 c. Fresh Tarragon Leaves
1/2 c. White Wine/Champagne Vinegar
1/2 c. Olive Oil
4 T. Dijon Mustard
1-2 t.  Red Pepper Flakes {adjust to taste}
8 cloves garlic minced
Whisk together the above and pour over 2 lbs (+ or -) precooked prawns.  {I usually use the 40 per pound size from the frozen food section}.  Let marinate for up to one day.  Stir every so often to distribute the marindade.
Pour out into a bowl or platter and serve with skewers.  Pre-skewer and serve as "lollipops" or place over a bed of greens for a lovely salad.
