Potted prawns are wonderful to serve with warm bread or toast for lunch or as an elegant first course.
Potted Fish: Other seafood can be potted by this method. Especially good are smoked fish such as mackerel, trout or salmon. Keep to the same quantity – that is, 250 g prepared fish to 250 g butter. Flake the fish fairly coarsely and remove any bones. You may like to increase the amount of lemon juice when using an oily fish such as mackerel or salmon.
