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.
