Delicious and Creamy Hot Shrimp Dip Recipe
This Hot Shrimp Dip recipe is a crowd-pleasing appetizer that combines the creamy richness of cream cheese, the succulent flavors of shrimp (or alternative seafood), and the delightful tang of Lagniappe Bodacious Blackened Seasoning. With a golden, cheesy topping and a satisfying texture, this dip is sure to impress your guests and leave them wanting more. Enjoy the deliciousness and savor the taste of this easy-to-make treat!
2 (8 oz) bars of cream cheese, softened
2 1/2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1/4 cup Lagniappe Bodacious Blackened Seasoning
1/2 lb of medium-sized shrimp (or substitute with crab or crawfish)
1 cup shredded or grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius)
If using fresh shrimp, peel, devein, and chop them into small pieces. If using pre-cooked shrimp, simply chop them into small pieces. You can also use crab or crawfish instead of shrimp for a delightful variation.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, unsalted butter, and Lagniappe Bodacious Blackened Seasoning. Mix thoroughly until all ingredients are well incorporated and the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Gently fold in the chopped shrimp (or other seafood option) into the cream cheese mixture until evenly distributed. This will ensure that every bite is packed with delicious seafood goodness.
Sprinkle the shredded or grated Parmesan cheese evenly over the top of the cream cheese and shrimp mixture. The cheese will melt and form a golden crust while baking, adding an irresistible cheesy goodness to the dip.
Transfer the prepared mixture to an oven-safe dish, spreading it evenly to ensure even cooking. Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes or until the top turns golden brown and bubbly.
Once baked, remove the dish from the oven and allow it to cool for a few minutes. Serve the Hot Shrimp Dip warm with your choice of crackers, tortilla chips, or toasted bread slices. It's ready to be devoured!
