Potted shrimps on toast with pickles

Potted shrimps are a traditional Lancashire dish made with brown shrimp flavoured with nutmeg. The dish consists of brown shrimp in nutmeg-flavoured butter, which has set in a small pot. Cayenne pepper may also be included.[1] It is traditionally eaten with bread. The butter acts as a preservative.[2]

Potted shrimp was a favourite dish of Ian Fleming who passed on his predilection for the delicacy to his famous fictional creation James Bond.[3] Fleming reputedly used to eat the dish at Scotts Restaurant on Mount Street in London where it is still served to this day.[4]
