Yep, you read that right! Butt-chive! It’s time for February’s Tessie O’Shea recipe. It’s from chapter 2 of her brilliant Slimming Cookbook

in the Hors D’Oeuvre and Snacks section

Naturally I chose it because of the recipe title. Tessie likes to shorten words so butt is short for butter, just in case you were tittering at the back.

I used tiny brown shrimp (in the UK shrimp are the little ones, prawns are the bigguns.
I think in the USA and maybe other places too, it’s the other way around).
Everything before mixing together. I couldn’t find my garlic salt so I used garlic granules.
All mixed together.
This was really nice on toast.
Unless you have it on TOAST!

I really liked this, although I wasn’t expecting to. As discussed before on the blog (when I made Lana Turner’s Scampi for example) I have it in my head that I don’t like shellfish. But usually, when I make something myself with them, I am sort of OK with them.

Well, I wouldn’t go that far…

This was a tasty little snack and with the leftovers I made some Jean Harlow Celery a la Shrimp

A blog post about my day living life a la Harlow is coming up next!

But to be honest, I think Tessie probably lived her life very much like Jean Harlow, just with a little more of everything…
