What are Potted Shrimps?
I recently read about a literary blog that gave a book reviewer the award for "Best Hatchet Job" of the year. The prize was a year's supply of potted shrimps (sic). Is it like potted meat (YUK)?
I found a recipe for potted shrimp. It looked quite elegant. I can't resolve the recipe with the insult/joke of the prize. What am I missing?
