Club Soda......................to taste

Fresh Jalapeno Sliced.....3 each

 

Clean, devein and peel prawns. Cut prawns in bite-sized pieces, seasoning with salt, and completely submerge in the lime juice and marinate for at least 45 min or until the translucent look is gone. (*** must be cut in bite-sized pieces in order for it to cook in the lime juice properly) in a separate bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients and add prawns when finished marinating.

 

Chef’s note: Use the club soda to rectify the acidity level of the lime juice. Depending on the time of the year your limes will have a different acidity level. You add the soda water when cooking is done and in order for you to swallow the lime juice by itself with out making a bitter face.
