    1. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium-high heat.
    2. Place the prawns in a bowl and toss with olive oil and salt and black pepper.
    3. Barbecue the prawns on the preheated barbecue until opaque, 2 minutes per side. Remove from the barbecue and set aside.
    4. Combine the cabbage, carrot, garlic, 1 tablespoon ginger, teriyaki sauce and lime juice in a bowl, stir well.
    5. Working with one at a time, wet rice paper with water and lay out on a clean surface. Place a quarter of the cabbage mixture in the centre of the paper, top with a quarter of the prawns. Shape the filling into a log shape and roll the rice paper around the filling, tucking the ends in as you go. Repeat with the remaining rice papers.
    6. Whisk together the peanut butter, teriyaki sauce, sesame oil, hot sauce, garlic, 1 tablespoon ginger, salt and pepper. Slice the rolls in half on an angle and serve with the peanut sauce on the side.
