Traditional Scottish Potted Shrimp Recipe

This recipe for Potted Shrimp which is a traditional snack or light starter menu item.

4 oz butter
1lb peeled shrimps
Pinch (each) of mace and nutmeg
seasoning (salt & pepper)
Melted butter to seal ingredients

Melt the butter (4 oz cube) in a fying pan over a moderate heat. Add the shrimps, mace, nutmeg. Stir and add seasoning according to taste. Heat gradually, stirring well, but do NOT allow to boil. Once cooked through, remove from heat.

Put the mixture into small ramekin dishes and cover each with enough butter to exclude all the air. Chill in the fridge. Serve cold with warm crusty bread.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
