HOW TO MAKE A SHRIMP DIP
- First, you want to cook the shrimp. If looking for inspiration, I suggest to use this easy and delicious Lemon Herb Garlic Butter Shrimp recipe.
- Then, let the shrimp cool a bit before chopping them up into pieces.
- In a large bowl combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, yogurt or sour cream, shredded mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, garlic, lemon juice, herbs and seasonings. Please make sure that the cream cheese is softened, otherwise it will be a bit of a challenge to whip everything together.
- Add diced shrimp to the cheesy mixture; stir and mix until everything is completely incorporated.
- Transfer the cheesy shrimp mixture to a lightly greased 2-quart baking dish.
- Bake for about 25 minutes, or until golden and bubbly.
- Remove from oven and serve immediately with veggies, like broccoli, cucumbers, bell peppers, and so on. Or, if low-carbing isn’t your forté, serve with pita chips, tortilla chips, crackers, etc…
- Feel free to toss in different seasonings, spices, or herbs.
- You can also add in baby spinach or chopped bell peppers.
- If shrimp is not an option, toss in some crab or diced ham.
HOW LONG CAN YOU KEEP SHRIMP DIP?
- Store Shrimp Dip leftovers in an airtight container and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in a 350˚F oven for about 8 to 10 minutes.
