recipe

Peter Piper probably wished he'd picked a peck of these pickled prawns instead of peppers. The poached shrimp are coated in a light vinaigrette, and then tossed with fennel, red onions, and butter beans, creating a twister on the tongue in taste and texture.

recipe

Butter beans, or small lima beans, are fresh in the summer. You can freeze them to use all winter, but frozen small limas may be used as well. Any extra vinaigrette can be stored in an airtight container and refrigerated for another use. Fresh butter beans will cook for 25 to 30 minutes--much longer than frozen lima beans.
