Cook’s Tip: When prawns are grilled, they have a much better texture after a short period of brining. To brine the prawns, place 1 tablespoon each kosher salt and brown sugar in a medium bowl and add one cup boiling water. Stir until salt and sugar are completely dissolved. Add 12 ice cubes and 1 cup cold water stir until brine is cold. When cold, add prawns and brine the prawns for 30 to 60 minutes in the refrigerator.
