Rosie Makes Potted Shrimp.

Rosie is making shrimp hors d'oeuvres today - potted shrimp.
It's a tasty little appetizer.

red onion
purple hyacinth blossoms 
(OK.  I didn't actually use them in the shrimp.
Just wanted to see if you were paying attention.)

Chop/mince everything.

Chop the shrimp.

More ingredients:
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 TB Worcestershire sauce
few shakes of cayenne pepper
few grinds of nutmeg
That's a nutmeg grater above,
and a poorly designed one at that.

Mix all together.

Melt 1/2 stick butter in your skillet
and add onion, celery, and radish.
Sauté about a minute ...

...  then add in shrimp.

Add in lemon juice mixture.
Add in mint and parsley.

Add in about 3-4 ounces cream cheese.
Stir to combine.

Turn mixture into ramekins.

 Cover with plastic and refrigerate. 

Serve on toast or crackers.

That looks delicious. I have some shrimp in my freezer that is crying out to be made into something good.
