Combine all ingredients in saucepan and cook over medium tolow heat, stirring, until butter is completely melted. Dip skewered prawnsin the orange sauce and position on oiled grill rack about 4 inches abovethe coals. Baste liberally with sauce and grill for 2 minutes. Turn theprawn over and baste again, cooking for another 2 minutes. Smallerprawn will be done at this point, but continue basting and turning largerprawn until they are pink and cooked through.
