Thank you Gorton’s Seafood for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
The holidays are right around the corner and that means festivities and food. Having go-to, easy to make appetizers like this shrimp dip is key when I know we will be entertaining guests.
During the holiday season we enjoy having people over to decorate cookies, watch Christmas movies and just celebrate the season. I always make sure to have food to nimble on while we are together. This shrimp dip is one of my favorites to serve and is always a huge hit!
Gorton’s Simply Bake Shrimp, Classic Scampi makes this appetizer so easy to put together. The shrimp is baked in a creamy garlic butter sauce that adds so much delicious flavor to this dip. Simply place the bag on a baking sheet and cook for 25 minutes. The scampi comes out amazing every time!
How to make Shrimp Dip
Making this dip only requires a few ingredients thanks to Gorton’s. The perfectly seasoned scampi sauce is baked in the bag with the shrimp. This means I don’t need to worry about extra ingredients or extra cleanup.
- Start by cooking the Gorton’s Simply Bake Shrimp in the oven according to directions. Bake for approximately 25 minutes.
- In a large bowl, mix together softened cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, cheeses and diced red pepper.
- Once the shrimp is baked, pour the contents of the package into the cheese mixture and stir until combined.
- Spread in a baking dish and bake for 25 minutes.
I like serving this appetizer with toasted baguette slices, crackers, or cut up vegetables. I have even been known to just eat it with a spoon when no one is looking. For some added color I also like to lightly sprinkle chopped fresh parsley on top.
If you enjoy shrimp scampi, you will love this dip!
Tips for making Shrimp Scampi Dip
- Let the cream cheese soften at room temperature. It makes it easier to mix the ingredients together.
- While the shrimp is baking, mix all of the other ingredients together.
- Stir in the shrimp scampi last.
