Guinataang Pitik with Spinach, Slipper Lobster in Coconut Milk with Spinach

Slipper Lobster in Coconut Milk with Spinach
Guinataang Pitik with Spinach, Slipper Lobster in Coconut Milk with Spinach. This is my second version of slipper lobster cooked in coconut milk the Pilipino way. In my previous Guinataan Pitik I used assorted vegetables, for today I used baby spinach. It would have been better if malungay leaves are available in my location here in Australia. How ever I have to innovate and use whatever vegetables that are available. This is not the first time that I used spinach in my guinataan recipes. I have used a lot of spinach in my Guinataan Manok with Spinach.

Guinataang Pitik with Spinach

Pitik is how most of us Pinoy call the slipper lobster. Slipper lobster is known as a cheaper alternative to lobster, it is even introduce as a lobster in some eating places or chefs to the not to informed diners. Never the less it is truly a good substitute of the real lobster for most of us who can not afford one.

Here is the recipe of my Slipper Lobster in Coconut Milk with Spinach, Guinataang Pitik with Spinach.
