Potted Prawns

Serves 4


200g Connacht Gold Sea Salted Creamery Butter

2 garlic cloves, crushed

4 tsp fresh thyme leaves, chopped

450g cooked prawns, peeled

Juice of 2 lemons

Black pepper


1 Place the butter in a heavy saucepan and melt slowly over a low heat. Remove the pan from the heat and leave to stand for five minutes, skimming off any foam from the top.

2 Slowly pour the butter into a container, discarding the milky solids in the bottom of the pan.

3 Add half of the butter back into the saucepan and stir in the thyme. Bring to the boil over a high heat, stirring constantly.

4 Add the prawns to the saucepan and cook for 2-3 minutes to warm through.

5 Pour in the lemon juice and season with pepper.

6 Divide the mixture into pots, or jars, and cover each with the remaining butter. Allow to rest for a few minutes. Serve with crusty bread or oatcake biscuits.
