Shrimp Dip


1 pound cooked shrimp, peeled

8 ounces cream cheese, softened

½ cup mayonnaise (we like Duke’ s)

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 teaspoon vinegar-based hot sauce, such as Texas Pete

1 bunch scallions, chopped (about 1 cup)

Salt to taste

Briny and creamy with a light bite from the scallions, this addictive shrimp dip deserves a spot in your fridge all summer long.


In the bowl of a food processor, pulse shrimp several times until coarsely chopped. Transfer to a large bowl, add remaining ingredients, and stir until thoroughly combined. Serve with Fancy Saltines (recipe below).
