Potted Shrimp

This is another recipe from my mother in law. It is easy and quick to prepare. A very rich starter and usually served with melba toast, squeeze  lemon on top of the shrimp to enhance the taste. I served on a bed of mix salad leaves and rosette of smoke salmon to give a colour.

Here is the ingredients

200 gr  shrimp
50 + 50  gr   butter
1/2 tsp mace powder
3    spring onion, slice finely
1 small clove garlic, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste


  • Melt 50 gr of butter in a sauce pan
  • Add in the chopped garlic and spring onion, stir for 1 minute. 
  • Now put the shrimp in and cook for another minute. Turn off the heat.
  • Place in 4 - 5 ramekin dish.
  • Melt the other 50 gr of butter and spoon it into the ramekin dish.
  • Cover and chilled in the fridge.
  • Ready to serve
