Creamy Shrimp Dip....

You probably have one of those cookbooks where everyone donates a recipe, right? Well, here is a recipe from a lady in Jacksonville, Florida; that has become a real favorite of mine. It is just a little bit different from most shrimp dips. If you are lucky enough to be able to buy fresh crab meat, that will work as well. How finely you mince the shrimp is entirely up to you. Chunky is good. You can always cut little triangles of red pepper and put a bit of dip on them ,for that one great  little bite. Hope you enjoy it.

Creamy Shrimp Dip
1  8oz pkg cream cheese, softened
2 cups boiled shrimp, minced
1 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
Salt to taste 
4-6 drops of hot sauce, to taste (Tabasco works fine)
Combine all the ingredients, blending well. Chill for 2-3 hours before serving. Garnish with a whole shrimp and serve with crackers of your choice or veggie spears. (celery, red peppers, carrots or cucumbers work well.)
Till next time.....
