MOM'S SHRIMP DIP RECIPE
I mentioned in a recipe post (for Salmon Patties) a few weeks ago that I was working on sharing some of my Mom-in-law's most popular recipes. These were the recipes everyone wanted her to bring to ALL their get togethers. She was famous for them! But because she is no longer with us, and I was unable to get these recipes from her, I'm having to fiddle with the flavors to get the recipes right!
CAN I USE FRESH SHRIMP IN SHRIMP DIP?
I think what I love most about these classic recipes is that they are super affordable. My mother-in-law, Chris, only ever used the canned shrimp and salmon. The canned shrimp are tiny shrimp that require no de-veining, removing of tails or additional cooking. You just chop them up! Plus, this is way more affordable and tastes great! And if you need a last-minute dip, you can make this fast without planning ahead.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)
