I love tasty food, and this blue cheese and shrimp garlic dip delivers! It is spicy, without a ton of heat, flavorful, and a bit unusual. My friend Marge is a very creative cook, and she loves this dish! A bit like buffalo shrimp but better!
Blue Cheese and Shrimp Garlic Dip
1 (12-oz) jar of regular or lite Blue Cheese dressing
1 lb. cooked & peeled shrimp
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cloves of garlic minced
1/4 teaspoon of celery seed
1/4 teaspoon of dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon of ground mustard
1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon of white pepper
1/4 teaspoon of hot pepper sauce (we use Cholula)
Flavor and spice without the heat – Cholula is my hot sauce of choice
- Chop shrimp into small pieces and set aside
- Combine remaining ingredients and mix well.
- Add shrimp and mix well.
- Refrigerate at least two hours. I like to refrigerate mine overnight, to allow all the flavors to mingle and meld together
Serve with crackers, pita chips or fresh veggies.
This is a very versatile dish, that would work well for a summer picnic or entertaining at home. It's a perfect dish to take out on the boat, keep on ice and serve with a nice cold beer or glass of wine as you watch the sunset after a day on the water.
