Is a spread a dip?
I’ve debated more than once about what qualifies as a dip, a sauce, a spread, or a condiment. In my mind, they all may range in consistency and application, but the result is the same: combined flavors. One of the flavors is a vehicle in which to get the second flavor into your mouth.
That means a shrimp butter recipe definitely belongs on the Saucy Dipper. And my mom told me to make it, so I had to post the recipe. She and her friends indulged in this shrimp butter awhile back and loved it. Now I’ve got the recipe and decided Mother’s Day would be the perfect time to eat it right up.
Plus, it gives me a chance to show off the stylish apron my mom made. Thanks, mom! Happy Mother’s Day!
*8 oz cream cheese, softened
*1 stick butter
*1 tbsp. mayo
*1 tbsp. lemon juice
*1 c. shrimp
*1 bunch green onion, chopped
Instructions: Chop shrimp and the whites of the green onions. Soften butter and then combine all ingredients. You could also blend up all ingredients using a hand blender. Let chill in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours allowing the butter to firm up. This spread works great on crackers, cucumbers, and even Fritos (so I’m told).
ps – This is the second dip of its kind that I’ve made. Here’s a link to my other shrimp dip recipe.
