Place the first 8 ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine.
Place the oil in a large skillet or wok set over medium-high heat. When hot, add the prawns and cook 1 minute per side. Add the honey mixture, bring to a simmer, and cook 1 to 2 minutes more, or until the prawns are nicely glazed and cooked through. Sprinkle prawns with mint or cilantro and serve.
Note: To devein the prawns, use a small paring knife to make a lengthwise slit along the back of each peeled prawn. Pull out, or rinse out with cold water, the dark vein. Pat prawns dry and they are ready to use.
Recipe Options: For citrusy, sour taste in this recipe, replace the rice or cider vinegar with fresh lime juice. Instead of mint or cilantro, add a fresh taste and hint of green to the prawns by sprinkling them with thinly sliced fresh basil or green onion, to taste.
