Although, Paddy Burkes Oyster Inn in Clarenbridge, County Galway, is remowned for its seafood, their is what I'm posting today. Their chef tempers the bite of the local grown peppers with smooth creme fraiche, which he swils in just before serving. From 'The Irish Pub Cookbook' by Margaret M. Johnson I found the Kerrygold Irish butter at Costco You can make you own Vegetable Stock and Creme Fraiche Homemade for this recipe
