Mix together the garlic, chipotle chillies, lemon juice, olive oil, paprika, coriander, sea salt, black pepper, crushed chillies and cayenne pepper in a bowl. Stir in the prawns and mix well to thoroughly coat. Marinate for 30 minutes in refrigerator.
Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil the cooking grate.
Remove the prawns from the marinade and discard excess marinade. Thread about 5 prawns per skewer and grill on the preheated barbecue until the prawns turn pink and opaque in the centre, about 2 minutes per side.
Tinned chipotle chillies in adobo sauce can be found in Hispanic speciality shops or online.
