|450 g||clarified butter|
|500 g||shrimp, peeled and cooked|
|¼ tsp||freshly ground nutmeg|
|¼ tsp||cayenne pepper|
|4 slice(s)||soft white bread, hot, buttered|
|2||lemons, cut into slices|
|¼ bunch(es)||chives, chopped|
Pat dry the shrimp, then cut them into 5mm pieces. Fill 250ml of the butter into a small saucepan and add the shrimp, nutmeg and cayenne pepper. Heat until very hot and allow the butter to absorb the flavours.
Evenly divide the shrimp butter into 4 small ramekins (60ml) and firmly press down with a spoon. Place the ramekins for at least 4 hours into the fridge to set.
Gently heat the remaining butter in a small saucepan, then pour the hot butter evenly into the ramekins. Cool again in the fridge for at least 4 hours to set.
Serve the potted shrimp with the hot bread slices and lemon slices, garnished with chives rolls.
