Potted Shrimps

"A dish that has been around forever! From Lancashire England, it can be made ahead and kept for several days. An excellent lunch paired with a crisp salad and crunchy bread."

  1. Both hubby and I enjoyed this dish...make sure to reheat if you let it sit in the fridge...but also to mix it well with the butter...a nice tasty dish...thanks for posting it...=)
  2. My dh & I really enjoyed the shrimp prepared this way. It had so much flavor. Loved the combination of spices. I made this dish with large raw shrimp they turned out tender and succulent. Next time I make this I will use less butter, maybe 3 ounces. I can't imagine this lasting in the house longer than it takes to plate them. So good. I will be making these again. Thanks so much for sharing another winner.
  3. This recipe tasted great and would be okay for an appetizer. Try to leave as much butter as you can in the pot because this is a fat and cholesterol nightmare. Tastes good though.
