this was a good recipe but we did something a little different. we used frozen shrimp peeled and diced then stir fried it with garlic minced celery butter and diced onions. the mix was then added to the rest of the ingredients with its sauce. the entire dip was the biggest hit of this past thanksgiving's party. it went really good with ritz crackers or any kind of cracker that doesn't have too much salt on it. i'll definitely be making this again and again and again.

Awesome and extremely easy! I'll remember this when I need a quick emergency snack for drop-in company. I agree with a previous critic that there may be just a little too much mayonaise in it. Next time I'll reduce the mayo by maybe 2 tablespoons. Also make sure you use fresh or frozen shrimp rather than canned to be assured of that wonderful shrimp flavor. Great on Triscuits. Read More

I like this recipe. I altered it just a bit by using 1/2 the mayo. Also I use steamed shrimp steamed with Old Bay and I add more Old Bay in the mixture. I'm from Maryland and we use Old Bay in all sorts of seafood recipes. It gives it a delcious flavor and spices up this delicious and simple recipe. Read More

Truly the "Best Ever"! ! I use only fresh cooked shrimp, none of the fake tasting canned or frozen stuff for me! ! I also use a little more celery & very mild onion than is called for, all chopped very fine. I think this would be good with crab or clams, too, but haven't tried it yet. Read More

If you are not tasting shrimp try using only domestic shrimp. It is wild caught from the ocean so it has the wonderful shrimp taste and flavor you grew up with. If you don't ask for wild caught shrimp you will get farm-raised from a foreign country. They are mushy and have no flavor. The recipe was great. Thanks. Read More

I love seafood...especially shrimp. I originally doubled this recipe and made it for a pool party. My husband and I ended up not going to the party but we've been enjoying the shimp dip at home for two days now!!!! It's really tasty! We've had it with Ritz crackers. I highly recommend this recipe!
