Potted Shrimps

Gawblimey I've been way busy these last three weeks, my refurb project is going well but I'm sorry to say blogging has taken a bit of a back seat of late.

The good news is that by the end I'll have squirreled away a few coins and I promise to buy more stuff to review and maybe even have a wildfood adventure to tell you all about.

In the meantime I was lucky enough to receive a pot of potted shrimps from MoB who have just been to the lakes. Delicious!

Here's James Martin's recipe from the BBC

110g/4oz butter
good pinch of cayenne pepper
good pinch of ground nutmeg
570ml/1 pint picked shrimps

1. Place the butter in a pan to melt with the pepper and nutmeg. Once melted, add the shrimps. Stir well over the heat and season.
2. Place the shrimps into little pots or ramekin dishes and press down.
3. Top with the remaining butter left in the bottom of the pan and chill in the fridge.
4. Serve with watercress, a lemon wedge and a couple of slices of brown bread.

Hope you're all well
