Brown shrimp? Do you mean "raw" (we call them "green" shrimp/prawns).
We have so many Australians online, here, that I'm sure you'll be over-whelmed with the responses.

Ah, a shrimp dishe they won't have n Oz
Ideally, you need those tiny Morecambe Bay shrimp.
Ingredients: Serves 4
1 pint of peeled brown shrimp
150g of butter
1 tablespoon of finely chopped chive
1/2 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper
1/2 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
One small crushed clove of garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
Dash of Tabasco sauce (optional)
1. Put the butter and garlic into a pan and leave whilst the butter melts and the garlic softens. It should only take a couple of minutes over a medium heat.
2. Add the shrimp, stir in for about 30 seconds then add the rest of the ingredients and keep stirring. It will only take four to five minutes to cook, the mixture mustn't boil at any stage.
3. Traditionally the potted shrimp is put into individual portions (ramekins) but If you don't have them use any suitable bowl. Allow to cool for a few minutes then place in the fridge to set.
4. Serve with toast or brown bread. You might like to make up cucumber sandwiches using the shrimp instead of butter.

Many thanks for the responses, and to clarify I meant cooked peeled brown shrimp not raw
