    1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.
    2. Rinse rice in cold water until water runs clear. Drain and combine with coconut milk, water, and 1 teaspoon salt in a pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Cover; reduce heat to low and simmer until tender, about 12 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork.
    3. Mix prawns and 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce together in a bowl until well coated.
    4. Toss asparagus with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, sesame oil, and black pepper. Lay on 1 side of the grill; cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Flip. Add prawns to the other side of the grill. Grill shrimp until opaque and asparagus is lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes more. Transfer to a platter.
    5. Divide the rice between 4 plates. Top with prawns and asparagus. Sprinkle scallions and sesame seeds on top. Drizzle 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce on top.
