 Ingredients List

  • Stephen Ceideburg
  • 1 c Butter, softened
  • 1 bn Chopped fresh cilantro,
  • -stems removed
  • 2 ts Minced fresh ginger
  • 2 ts Minced garlic
  • 4 Limes, divided

  • 36 Black tiger prawns, peeled
  • -and deveined
  • 1/2 c Dry white wine, optional
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 c Fresh spinach, julienned


In the bowl of a food processor, combine butter, cilantro, ginger and
garlic. Process until smooth. Add the juice of 3 limes and mix well.

Saute bell peppers and prawns in the cilantro-butter mixture over medium
heat. The wine may be added at this point. (It helps keep the butter from
scorching and makes a smoother sauce.) Cook until prawns are pink and just
barely done. Season with salt and pepper.

Serve on 1/2 cup of julienned spinach for each serving, drizzling the
butter over the top to wilt the spinach. Garnish with lime wedges.
