1. Put the onion and juice of 1 lime in a bowl with a little salt; set aside. Put the remaining juice in another bowl; stir in the garlic, chilli paste and peanut butter. Whisk in 1-2 tbsp water until smooth and pourable. Season; mix in the chopped coriander.
2. Simmer the corn in boiling water for 8 minutes; drain well. Meanwhile, heat a griddle to smoking hot; cook the corn for 6-8 minutes, turning now and then, until lightly charred and tender; set aside. Cook the prawns for 1-2 minutes each side, until pink.
3. Divide the lettuce between 2 plates. Carefully slice the kernels from the corn; scatter over the lettuce, followed by the prawns, onions, dressing and remaining coriander leaves
