Thank you for your question. Prawns are halal. Below is a quote from the book Jurisprudence made Easy by Ayatullah Sistani:

Among marine animals and amphibians that are haraam to eat are cat fish, tortoise, frog, and lobster.
* What about prawns?
- They are halal to eat, for scales cover their skin.

May you always be successful
