A Quick & Easy Appetizer: How to Make Layered Shrimp Dip
Around the holidays, it is always nice to have a few favorite recipes on hand that you can easily whip up before a party or festive occasion.
I tend to enjoy eating any sort of chip/dip combination, and this layered shrimp dip is one of my absolute favorites.
Growing up, my mom would prepare this a few times each year to take to various events, and I would always look forward to when she would make an extra dip for us to munch on at home. Once I began to venture into the kitchen, and into the world of cooking, this was one of the first savory dishes that I made, and I continue to make it to this day.
With New Yearʼs Eve approaching, and party planning underway, I thought that this could be a crowd-pleasing dish that you can easily add onto your menu!
Corinneʼs Layered Shrimp Dip
1/4 C. Cream Cheese
1/3 C. Mayo
1/2 C. Sour Cream
1 250 mL Jar of Seafood Sauce
1 Red Pepper
1 Green Pepper
15-20 Medium Sized Shrimp (Peeled, Deveined, Tail off)
1/2 C. Grated Cheddar Cheese
Green Onions (Optional)
1. In a bowl, mix together the cream cheese, mayo and sour cream until blended smoothly.
2. Line the bottom of a pie plate or round glass dish with this mixture.
3. Spread the seafood sauce on top. I love the tanginess of the sauce, and tend to use more than less. Add any amount that you desire, but cover the white mixture entirely and evenly.
4. Chop the peppers and tomatoes into small chunks, and sprinkle evenly over the seafood sauce.
5. Layer the shrimp evenly over the veggies. I used frozen shrimp that I defrosted, and removed the tails from.
6. Grate cheddar and sprinkle on top of the shrimp.
7. If you like green onions, then chop up a few and top your dip with green onions.
8. Serve with tortilla chips (I prefer Organic Blue Corn).
You can easily prepare this dish the day before, and leave it in the fridge overnight before your party or event. If you are not keen on using seafood, then prepare your dip without any shrimp, but still use the seafood sauce, as it is an integral flavor element in
Have a safe and happy New Yearʼs!
And always remember, ‘In Work & Play, to Savor the everyday’!
