Potted brown shrimp, citrus mace

great potted brown shrimp recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1kg brown shrimps
  • 500g unsalted butter
  • 1 large red chilli (brunoise)
  • 1 red onion (brunoise)
  • 1 lemon (zest and juice)
  • 1 good pinch chopped dill
  • 1 good pinch mace
  • 1 good pinch smoked sweet paprika
  • salt

Method

soften butter and mix all ingredients in a bowl together, adding spices and salt to taste.
if serving out of pot, line with clingfilm, drain off a little butter and spoon into the bottom of the pots, chill until set. once set, fill with prawn mix and return to fridge, turning out when set.
if serving in pots, drain off a little butter and reserve. fill pots and chill until set. when set, spoon reserve butter over the top to create a butter "seal". this will make your pots last much longer, and give them a more attractive finish.
