  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat; lightly oil the grate.
  2. Cook the shrimp on the hot grill until they are bright pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center, 5 to 10 minutes. Arrange the prawns on a serving platter.
  3. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Fry the garlic in the hot oil until brown, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir the lemon grass, chile peppers, shallot, lime leaves, fish sauce, lime juice, and chilli paste into the garlic; toss to combine. Spoon the sauce over the prawns. Garnish with the mint to serve.
