Prawn in creamy garlic butter sauce with tomato compit and Himalayan spinach. In original recipe sundried tomatoes and baby spinach has been used. I did not have sun dried tomato so replaced it with garlic herbed roasted tomato somewhat similar to tomato compit himalayan spinach. It did wonders to the flavor and taste. Himalayan spinach are different in shape. These are very tender and sweet in taste. The final outcome was extremely delicious and licked the bowl as if there was nothing served in it.
