Pink Shrimp Dip
OK guys I gotta tell you … I absolutely love this recipe!
Pink Shrimp Dip is such an old fashioned party appetizer. I remember having it a lot when I was growing up in southern Louisiana. I’m pretty sure shrimp dip is a southern thing but please correct me if I’m wrong! Any time there was a church potluck or a party going on, someone always ended up bringing this dip. It’s one of those appetizers that you just can’t stop eating once you’ve had that first bite. It’s a guaranteed winner!
So what is this amazingly delicious dip made of? It’s made from canned tiny shrimp, cream cheese, green onions, chili sauce, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and a few seasonings like smoked paprika and a dash of cayenne pepper … just to keep it real.
To make it, just put all of the ingredients in a bowl, mix really good and refrigerate.
Super, super, simple people. Sometimes it’s the simple things that make recipes so dang delicious!
I like to serve this dip with butter crackers but you could also use something like toasted bread slices or Melba rounds.
If you love shrimp you should make this dip for your next get together. One of the nice things about this recipe is that you can make it a day or two ahead of time which really helps when you’re busy with other things like … life!
I’m into keeping things as simple as possible these days and it just doesn’t get any more simple than this folks!Print
