Old Fashioned Shrimp Dip

I absolutely could not get enough of this old fashioned shrimp dip. My wife made this for the Superbowl. When she brought it out I admit I might have made a face. That ‘what is that?’ face. But I grabbed a cracker and dug in and wow! What a great dip! Fantastically creamy rich, but with the tang of cocktail sauce, this dip packs in tons of flavor and of course my favorite, shrimp!

Classic Greatness

I think this old fashioned shrimp dip is perfect just as it is. And it’s perfect for a crowd, too. You could, though, substitute crab for the shrimp. I’d be ok with that. Specially since I’m a crab addict in addition to being a shrimp addict. It’s a great dip either way. Just grab lots of crackers!
