Shrimp Dip – That’s Easy to Make!

This recipe is very easy to make, you will mix your seasonings into your cream cheese. Place the cream cheese on a plate, and top with the cocktail sauce, and drained canned shrimp. Seriously, it is that easy to make!

Do you have to use canned shrimp?

You do not have to use canned shrimp, but it is very easy to use. You can purchase about 8 ounces of cooked salad shrimp from the grocery store, that works very well. I like to keep a can or two of canned shrimp on hand, because sometimes you have company drop by without notice, and I like being able to pull together a quick and easy appetizer for my guests.
