Soak 4 wooden skewers in cold water for 10 mins. Mix the prawns and curry paste in a bowl, then thread onto the skewers. Heat a griddle pan over a high heat and cook the prawns for 2-3 mins each side, until cooked through and charred.

Heat 2cm oil in a deep pan over a medium-high heat. Test if the oil is hot by dropping in one of the noodle pieces; it should puff up immediately. In batches, drop the noodles into the oil for a few secs to puff up, then remove and drain on kitchen paper.
Whisk the lime juice, fish sauce, 2 tsp vegetable oil and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add the grapefruit, vegetables, chilli, nuts and herbs. Add three-quarters of the noodles and toss together. Serve with the cooked prawns and remaining noodles.
