Method

  1. Put the butter in a measuring jug in the microwave and cook on High for 2 mins, until it melts. Leave for about 10 mins for the milky solids to settle at the bottom.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the prawns, or shrimps, crabmeat, lime zest, mint, chilli flakes, if using, and seasoning. Divide this mixture between 2 ramekin dishes, packing it in fairly well. Pour over the clarified butter (strain it through a fine sieve) to cover the fish, leaving behind the milky solids. Chill for about 45 mins until set. Serve at room temperature, with toasted ciabatta. The potted fish will keep for 2-3 days in the fridge.
