Potted Shrimp

The Little Idiot bought me a present of potted shrimp. A lovely present... If you don't know them you should get to know them as soon as possible. They are buttery, spicy, sweet and delicious.


You can warm them through in a pan, so the butter melts, with a slice of brown bread, or you can just have them straight out of the pot with a piece of toast. A squeeze of lemon over the top brings out the shrimps sweetness. I have read recipes for grilled fish where you make a sauce from the tub of shrimps and butter and add garlic and shallots, or adding them at the end of a simple risotto. I'll have to try both. And yes I did share them with TLI.
