    Place flour, butter and salt into a kitchen processor. Blitz until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Then add water, a little at a time, to form the dough. Roll pastry on a lightly floured board to fit a 23cm tart tin. Line the tin with the pastry. Blind bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven. Adjust the oven to 170°C.

    To make the filling heat butter in a pan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook for 4 minutes until softened. Add prawns and cook until they have just turned pink. Fold through the spinach to wilt.
