Buying the best
The best potted shrimps come from Morecambe Bay, with those from the Norfolk coast a close second.


  1. Spread the toast slices with the potted shrimps. Add a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkling of cayenne.

  2. Cut into fingers, add a sprig of watercress to each one and serve straight away with lemon wedges for squeezing over.
