2 Limes

2 tbsp Fresh Parsley, chopped

Juice of 1 Lime





1. Strip all fat from the meat. Starting at the thick end, tie each piece of meat into a cylinder in 6 places with fine cotton string. Trim the ends to neaten the rolls.

7. Spread the spinach over the base of a large, heated serving plate. Using a slotted spoon, remove the cooked medallions from the pan and arrange them on the spinach leaves. Arrange one segment of lime on the side of each round of meat. Keep warm.


8. Add the remaining butter to one of the frying pans and stir, over a medium heat, to scrape up the meat juices from the base of the pan. Stir in the lime juice and parsley, then spoon the sauce over the meat. Serve immediately.
