    Saffron Buttered Prawns

    This is a little like potted shrimp, but much quicker as you don't have to clarify the butter. It makes a wonderful dinner party starter or light lunch served with lamb's lettuce and cucumber.

    Serves: 4


    • 125g unsalted butter
    • A pinch of saffron
    • A good pinch of salt
    • 400g roughly chopped Icelandic prawns
    • Brown toast triangles


    1. Melt 125g unsalted butter in a saucepan and add a pinch of saffron, a good pinch of salt and 400g roughly chopped Icelandic prawns. Cook over a low heat for 4-6 minutes, stirring very gently. Divide the mixture between 4 ramekins or small pots. Serve warm with a stack of brown toast triangles.
