    Raw prawn is a fishing term, slippery wet fish...however..the statement itself is  Australian , meaning " don't try to put one over on me" also " I'm no fool so don't even go there".....so I would have to say Australia is the origin ....there are many odd sayings, more in the southern states than the north...
