    Melba Toast with Potted Prawns

    This dish has a lovely old-fashioned feel to it. Making potted prawns is very easy but if you don't want to do so, simply use 4 pots of Morecambe Bay potted shrimps.

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 20 minutes 20 minutes

    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    • 4 slices bread, 1cm thick
    • 240g peeled prawns
    • 90g unsalted butter
    • Pinch cayenne pepper
    • Pinch ground allspice
    • Fresh ground black pepper

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4.
    2. Toast the bread on both sides, then cut off the crusts and cut the slices into triangles. (Put the bread trimmings in a bag and store for breadcrumbs.) Use a serrated knife to split each piece of bread down the middle into two slices. Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 5 minutes until dry, crisp, and slightly curled.
    3. Meanwhile, melt the butter over a very low heat (it should be just warm enough to melt, not cook). Add the prawns and the spices, stir, then divide among 4 small ramekins. Take to the table with the toast.
