For those with a taste for Gentleman's Relish

shrimp paste

I am a great fan of The Gentleman’s Relish, an achovy paste. It is also known as Patum Peperium. I enjoy it on toast with tea on a cold Sunday afternoon. Delicious.

However, it is not a regular treat because it costs £1.59 for 42.5 grams. Quite steep, but worth buying as an occasional treat.

After much searching, I have found an alternative. Tesco Shrimp Paste, which is “Thai style”. It costs £1.89 for 110 grams. To me, it tastes just as good as The Gentleman’s Relish.
