Blue Cheese and Shrimp Garlic Dip

by | Sep 6, 2016

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)

Yummy! Shrimp as the Base!
  • 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.

Tips

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.
