To do this, you will only need large prawns and bacon. Smaller prawns are
not advisable to be used here as they will end up being dry and hard.

First, you have to shell your prawns. The head and shells can be retained to make Laksa
Then pierce a wooden skewer through the prawn from the tail-end. Oh,
and please remember to wet the wooden skewer first. This is to prevent
it from burning during the grilling process.
Next, wrap a bacon
from the tail-end with the fatty part of the bacon 'outside'. Overlap
the bacon a little and continue wrapping till the whole prawn is
covered. Tuck the loose end of the bacon in. If you have no idea how to
do it, just use a toothpick to secure. Likewise, wet the toothpick
first before use. You can season with some ground black pepper and set
them to grill till cooked. Remove the toothpick and serve with sweet and spicy sauce or your preferred sauce.
If you have the time, the best way to do this is to partially cook the
bacon first. It should not be brown; just cooked. This should take
about less than 1 minute. Let it cool then starts with the wrapping.
This is to ensure that the prawn that is wrapped inside will not be
over cooked and become dried. You can use this method too if you are
not using large prawns.
You can also do this using the oven if
you like. I haven't seen the grilled marks on my food for a long time
so I'm using the grill pan this time. ;)
