Ingredients

  • 150g salted butter
  • 1 garlic clove, bashed
  • 2 sprigs of thyme, bruised
  • a pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 blade of mace or a pinch of ground mace
  • sea salt flakes
  • 3 x 70g packs brown shrimp, or see Tip
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges
  • crusty bread or toast, to serve

Step by step

  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan. When fully melted, skim off the milk solids and discard so you end up with clarified butter left in the pan.
  2. Add the garlic, thyme, cayenne, mace and some black pepper and simmer gently for 2 minutes. Add a pinch of sea salt and stir in the shrimp to warm through for a minute. Serve with the lemon wedges to squeeze over and lots of bread or toast for dipping into the butter.
    Tip
    If you can’t get hold of brown shrimp, small Atlantic prawns work well, but eat them straight away rather than leaving to set in ramekins.
