Potted Shrimps with Pitta Bread Crisps

Potted Shrimps with Pitta Bread Crisps

Preparation Time: 15 mins Chilling Time: 2+ hours

80g clarified butter (I was lazy and bought Lurpak clarified butter but normal butter works just as well) 1/2 tsp paprika 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg Juice of 1 lemon 100g peeled brown shrimps or prawns 2 wholemeal pita breads olive oil salt and pepper

Make it! Melt the butter in a saucepan over a low heat, you don’t want to cook it, just melt it. Stir in the spices and lemon juice, with salt and pepper to taste. Stir the shrimps into the butter. Divide into ramekins or glasses, then refrigerate for a couple of hours. Remove the ramekins from the fridge half an hour before serving, to soften the butter.

These are some recipes collected over the years in kitchens. They are mainly in note form, hence rough, and often scribbled down like a madwoman. Contact me if it’s all too confusing!
