Portly Cooks | Wild Halibut, Squid, Asparagus and Potted Shrimp Butter

Halibut, Squid, Potted Shrimp

Sometimes it’s nice to indulge in some fancy food. This plate basically has all of my favourite foods in one meal, Wild Halibut is the fancy indulgence, Squid is my favourite seafood and asparagus is my favourite vegetable, all that with potted shrimp what is not to like?

  • 1 Slice Wild Halibut
  • 4 Squid Rings
  • Asparagus Spears
  •  1 1/2 tsp Potted Shrimp Butter
  • Flour
  • Oil for frying

The only faff with this one is really the squid. In a small saucepan heat about an inch of oil, coat the squid rings in the flour and fry for around 30 seconds to a minute and then keep them warm. In another pan boil the asparagus untill it’s just tender and then leave it to keep warm in the water.

Finally in a small pan fry the halibut for about 2-3 minutes on either side, once it’s nearly ready add the potted shrimp butter basting the fish. Then all you have to do in plate it up, asparagus, fish, then the squid and the potted shrimp butter on the top.

    What’s potted shrimp butter? That’s the first that I’ve heard of it ?

    1. It’s brown shrimp that have been potted in a spiced butter.

      They used prawns here but here is a link for a recipe https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/classic-potted-shrimps?amp
