Shrimp Dip (and “Kitchen Simplifiers” Kit Giveaway)

This week, I had a cake and a breakfast dish for you, now it’s time for an appetizer! A dip, to be more specific. This dip is very simple and incredible delicious!

We had a tough work week around here, I won’t go into any specifics but we needed some time to relax a have  a little fun. Hubby invited his friend over and decided to order us pizza. Day off from cooking! I like it when he invites his friends over because they are so appreciative of my cooking. I think hubby is a little spoiled with the great meals and doesn’t make as many yummy noise as his friends. How else is a cook supposed to know that she made something delicious without the yummy noise? So I decided to make something quick and easy for an appetizer.

I really didn’t feel like having pizza, I wanted shrimp! You know how sometimes you go out to eat and some appetizers look so good, you just make a meal out of it? I do that all the time. I also make myself easy seafood when I don’t have to worry about anyone else’s dinner. Hubby doesn’t like seafood, so it was all mine….well his friend helped.

I also got to try a new product while making this dip. I usually buy butter that comes in individual wrapped sticks but I was asked by Land O Lakes to try their new product and create a recipe for them. I love creating new recipes and you know that I don’t share any products with you I don’t like. Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil is made with only three simple ingredients: sweet cream, canola oil and salt. I love that fact, the less unknown ingredients, the better! Hubby especially liked this butter because it’s easily spreadable and tasty. He is a bagel and butter man and enjoys his pancakes as well. The fact that he didn’t have to wait for the butter to soften, was a plus for him.

    I like to cut up onions and green peppers ahead of time and freeze them, that way if I only need a bit I don’t have to worry about the rest spoiling.

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

    I make weekly meal plans, and shop a few days before the week, buy fresh meat for the next day meal. sometimes I double a recipe for example a new product I’m loving is spouted brown rice. It keeps well for days in fridge. One day I use it as a side dish, the next day might be stir fry or add it to soup etc. I also like to make smoothies with frozen fruit and blend it the night before and everyone has one next day for work snack, breakfast etc. I also purchased up first CSA share last year and have purchased one for this year as well. It’s a great thing to do for the family as you get fresh veggies (or if lucky where you live fruits too) each week. You may get something you haven’t used before or tried, so it gets you experimenting and trying new things. Also time saver for me is going to our butcher and getting meat packed in smaller amounts. OR getting two pounds of fresh ground beef from them and browsing all of it. Then dividing it up for half for that night supper meal and half for next night. I love when I have some of my meal ready, like the brown rice or the meat is cooked, then incase you don’t have a meal planned ( or change your mind) the possibilities are easier and quicker.

    I am usually adventerous and will try new recipes, but once I love them, they stay in my repertoire! Always good to have a tried and true staple of recipes! This may be added to that list!

    This shrimp dip looks and sounds delicious. My last guy didn’t like shrimp either, so now I can enjoy shrimp again, and this will be one of the ways to do so. I live alone, so I cook meals, then split them up into single servings and freeze, so when I do my long week at work, 7 days straight, I have easy meals to just reheat.

  5. Amanda A. says

    I plan my meals out every week. I also decide what meals to have the night before and I also try and use the slow cooker as much as possible.

    • lyuba says

      I used to plan weekly meals too. Somehow, I got away from that but I need to start doing it again :)
      Thank you and good luck!

    I plan several weeks worth of menus at one time, mixing tried and true recipes with new ones. Then, when I got shopping, I pick two of the menus (hubby gets paid every 2 weeks!) and make my grocery list based on that. I plan which meals I’ll make when based on our schedule. I freeze leftovers in individual portions so we can all grab what we want on crazy nights or when I just need a break from cooking. Leftovers don’t become science experiments in the fridge and anyone wanting a quick meal has one.

    I make 2 or 3 different types of cookie dough, then flash freeze them in the portion I used to make the cookie. When we want fresh baked cookies, I pull out the number I need, bake them and we’re set in just a few minutes!

    I like to prepare parts of dinner earlier in the day to make things run smoother when I get home from work and have too many other things to deal with over cutting carrots or seasoning meats.

  8. says

    My favorite tip is to clean as you go. I find it so much easier as I’m getting meals ready to clean a knife, cutting board, pan, etc. quickly while it’s ‘fresh’ and not dried on, and then it’s nicer to sit down to a meal with half the clean-up already done!

    Thanks for the chance to win! I LOVE that cutting board/colander!!!

  9. says

    WOW. My husband will love this recipe as he is such a shrimp lover! And a cheese lover. And a dip lover. :) Thanks for sharing! I will be making this very soon!

    We are going to just love this dip! Hope you are having a great weekend and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.

    I like to plan my week’s menu ahead of time, before I go grocery shopping so that I can maximize use of the ingredients on sale. Then, no vegetables or other foods go to waste or are forgotten.

  13. Lana says

    I made this, followed it to the letter and it was very runny. It did not come out like a dip, more like a creamy sauce. Was there a mistake in the recipe perhaps? I’m an intermediate home cook and rarely mess up recipes. The overall flavour profile was delicious tho! Thank you!

    • lyuba says

      Hi Lana, I’m sorry it came out runny. I would suggest adding a little extra cheese or a couple of table spoons of sour cream. Mine wasn’t too think but it wasn’t runny either. Try adding mozzarella may be, it will melts in better. If you like it thicker, add a couple of teaspoons of flour while melting the butter, to form a roux.
      I’m glad you liked the taste though!!

  14. Jan Singer says

    This sounds awesome…… I have fresh/now frozen shrimp from Biloxi, MS and will use that in this recipe. perfect for Sunday afternoon happy hour. In reading the recipe, do I use shredded parm or grated ?

    • lyuba says

      I believe, I used both for this recipe. I like to use fresh grated on top but you can use grated only or dry only. I think fresh brings more flavor to it.
      Thank you!

    • lyuba says

      I’m so glad you liked it! Yes, try using 4-5 oz. cream cheese to make it creamier and thicker. Thank you, Crystal!
