  3. Season with sea salt and black pepper, place the bowl in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, the batter can be made hours in advance.
  4. Preheat oven to 220°C/Gas 7
  5. To prepare the pea crush; melt the butter in a small pan, add the shallots, thyme and sugar, fry gently until soft. Add the peas and chicken stock and cook until soft. Crush roughly with a potato masher, adjust the seasoning and keep warm.
  6. Place the muffin tin on a baking sheet and brush the rapeseed oil or dripping into the bottom of each cup of the muffin tin. Put the muffin tin into the oven until the oil is very hot.
