Spicy Lemon Shrimp Dip

This is an easy recipe for an appetizer or just an evening watching a movie! It’s a family favorite and so easy to prepare!

You’ll need one pound (16 ounces) Fresh or Frozen Medium Shrimp, deveined,  pre-cooked is fine (if using frozen) thaw first. In a pot of boiling water add one tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning add shrimp and cook 3 minutes (the shrimp will turn a beautiful pink). Drain and let cool. Once cooled cut into pieces.

In a mixing bowl add 1-1/4 cup mayonnaise, 1/2 cup sour cream, 2 sprigs chives cut into small pieces, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, one lemon (washed) for zest and juice. Several dashes of your favorite Hot Sauce (any will work), 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes.  Add the shrimp ( I cut them into smaller pieces) then stir with a spatula to well incorporate all ingredients. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate 1-2 hours before serving.

We just love this with toasted bread slices, or crackers whatever you would like to spread this on! It has a slight kick but not too spicy! 

I hope you like shrimp and give this easy, dip/spread a try it is so good!

In closing, I wish you Good Health “Cheffie Cooks” All Things Citrus.

See YOU, have a great day.
