Grilled Prawns over Sweet Pineapple Tamale with Cilantro Puree

EQUIPMENT

Food processor

INGREDIENTS

  • 36 jumbo prawns, peeled and deveined

For the Marinade:

  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, zested
  • 1 tsp. hot sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • Cracked black pepper

For the Cilantro Puree:

  • 2 cups fresh firmly packed cilantro leaves cleaned and spun dry
  • 3 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt

For the Sweet Pineapple Tamales (makes 24 tamales):

  • 1 8 oz. package-dried corn husks
  • 1 ripe medium pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into rough cubes
  • 10 oz. unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • Salt
  • 1 1/2 cups dried masa harina for tamales mixed with 2 1/4 cups hot water
  • 2/3 cup golden raisins

DIRECTIONS

  1. Cover the husks with very hot water, keep them submerged and let stand for a couple of hours, until pliable. Separate 24 of the largest and most pliable husks – about 6 inches wide and 6-7 inches long. Overlap a couple if there are not enough large ones. Pat husks dry with a towel.
  2. In a food processor, coarsely puree the pineapple. Measure out 2 cups. On medium-high speed, beat butter, sugar, baking powder, and 1 tsp. salt until light and fluffy. Continue beating as you add the masa in three additions. Reduce speed to medium-low, add 2 cups pineapple puree. Continue beating for 1 minute. Add water if needed.
  3. Form tamales
  4. Steam and serve
