How To Make Low Carb and Keto Appetizer – Shrimp Dip Recipe
Step One – Layer Ingredients
Lay room temperature cream cheese in a dish. You can spread it out slightly, or leave it as is.
Spread cocktail sauce over the top of cream cheese, then top with shrimp. If desired, you can garnish with dill, parsley, and some pepper.
Tip: make sure to use a tested favorite cocktail sauce! This dip is only as good as your cocktail sauce. Here is a great recipe:
Step Tw0 – Serve
Serve with raw veggies and crackers. I small cocktail spreader or butter knife makes it easier to spread on crackers.
| Can I substitute fresh shrimp for canned shrimp?
Yes, you can use fresh or frozen cooked shrimp. If the shrimp are on the larger side, make sure to chop them as it’s easier to serve on veggies or crackers.
| Can I make this appetizer ahead of time?
Yes! You can make this appetizer up ahead of time but it only takes 3 minutes, so I usually just make when I’m ready to serve it.
If you do make this ahead of time, cover and refrigerate. Remove about 3o minutes before serving so the cream cheese is softened.
| How long will this appetizer keep?
This appetizer will keep up to 4 days.
