1 c Butter; softened
1 bn fresh cilantro; Chopped
2 ts fresh ginger; Minced
2 ts Garlic; minced

Preparation

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.

I adjusted the quantities for 2 servings and reduced the lime to one and a half. Very nice flavor, I would make it again
