Grilled prawn, Mojo de Ajo and Blistered Tomatoes

½ cup olive oil
8 cloves garlic
2/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon ground oregano
1 ½ teaspoons salt, or to taste
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro or flat-leaf parsley
8 prawns
24 cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste

To make Mojo de Ajo:
– Heat olive oil in deep saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic, and cook until fragrant and pale golden brown. Do not let brown too much, or else garlic will become bitter.
– Stir in sour orange juice (or lime juice and grapefruit juice), water, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper. Stand back, because the sauce may spatter. Bring to rolling boil. Correct the seasoning, adding more salt and pepper, if needed. Let cool to room temperature, and then stir in cilantro or parsley.
– Marinade prawns in mojo de ajo.
– Oil tomatoes and season them.
– Grill prawns until opaque inside. Grill tomatoes until blistered.
