This was a really great dip! I did change it a little... I added the shrimp first and then used the beater. I didn't like the idea of having whole shrimp in the dip. It turned out well. Read More

I didn't check my lemon juice first. It was VERY strong and made this dip a little too tangy. I suggest using less lemon juice and taste it first you can always add more if necessary. Other wise it is very good. Read More

Can also substitute canned crab meat for the shrimp which makes it yummy too. My suggestion to make it a touch less messy is I spread the cream cheese mixture on the bottom of a decorative pan and then put the cocktail sauce on top. It makes it easier for guests to spread and doesnt ruin your "Creation" like when you put it in the ball form. Wonderful recipe good one to share. Read More

I have a difficult time following a recipe I always have to alter it in some way or another. It's the day before Thanksgiving and I'm making all those last minute things. One thing that has always been on our table every Thanksgiving has been celery stuffed with cream cheese. Now that "I've" been the one cooking the holiday dinners the past few years I'm final able to spice things up a bit hahaha. I substituted a 6oz can of fancy lump crabmeat for the shrimp added 2 TBSP of fresh chopped parsley and added a tsp of Emeril Lagasse's essence spice (you don't have to buy it I got the recipe last year when I made his cranberry glazed Turkey breast). I used all the other ingredients such as the lemon juice and hot sauce. I think it tastes fantastic. Not sure if anyone else will like it tomorrow or not but I do haha. It has a slight 'kick' to it not overwhelming at all. Read More

I too spread this in a flat dish. After I add the cocktail sauce I top it with grated havarti cheese (or monterey jack/parmeasan/mozza). Sometimes I sprinkle it with some finely chopped fresh dill. Everyone LOVES it! Read More

very simple very tasty very affordable. I use only one 8 oz package of cream cheese to one 4 oz can of tiny shrimp. Mush together with a fork and squirt in the lemon juice. I didn't do the hot sauce (kids party) or green onion (didn't have it). Read More
