Cook the prawns off in batches for 2-3 minutes per batch or until cooked through and with nice char marks on them.
While the prawns cook make the slaw. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and toss everything until the cabbage is completely covered.
Once the prawns have cooked, set them aside while you grill the tortillas off.
Once the tortillas are warm, assemble the tacos. Place some slaw down before scooping avocado into the centre and topping with prawns and lastly garnishing with spring onion and coriander.
