The ingredients all laid out, I show this so that you know exactly what to buy. Keep in mind that you can always buy generic products to save money.
Now we dump all of those ingredients into a medium-sized mixing bowl.
Next, we mix until it’s smooth… you can easily do this by hand with a spoon, or simplify it by using a potato masher… or a hand mixer is really your best option to make it super easy.
Put the dip in a cute dish, and you can garnish it with a few more shrimps on top. I like to serve mine by surrounding the dish with Ritz crackers, but it’s also super tasty with ripple potato chips and can even be used as a filling for shrimp puffs.
