Morecambe Bay Potted Shrimps

Morecambe Bay Potted Shrimps

There are certain foods that really remind me of the Lake District.  One of them has to be Morecambe Bay Potted Shrimps.  Small brown nuggets of joy encased in a spicy butter – spread them on hot toast or eat with thin crackers: a perfect Lakeland snack.  You can buy them already prepared from the grocer’s in Broughton or try making them yourselves.  Felicity Cloake’s excellent column How to Make the Perfect …. in the Guardian gives an excellent history and recipe.
