I love this dip! It is quick, easy to prepare, and it goes so well in parties! It is almost always the first dish to disappear.
I first had this dip in my niece Mona’s house a couple of years back, in one of her Thanksgiving parties that she loves to host.
This present version that I got in the habit of making since, is not the original one. You might have guessed! I never keep to a recipe, and this one is no exception. Sorry Mona, that stick of butter just had to go! The chopped celery too, my husband refuses to eat it….
400grs Philadelphia cream cheese (room temperature)
400 grs frozen shrimp
4 green onions
a small knob of butter
1tbsp fish sauce
Defrost shrimp in a colander to drain all excess water
squeeze with your hands just to make sure all the water is gone
heat the butter in a pan, add the shrimp, and give it a super quick whirl around just to firm up
remove from heat immediately and let cool
chop the green onions
add the softened cream cheese
add fish sauce
I also like to add a few drops of Tabasco to give it a kick, but that’s optional
cover & refrigerate till needed
serve with bagel chips or similar
