Cheesy shrimp dip to dowse you into delicious goodness

Whether you love shrimps, fish or crab – if you’re a seafood lover like me, you probably enjoy these delicacies in all ways – baked, fried, grilled or in the form of dips and sauces. Since winter is upon us, our spirits often become lazy. In winters, a spoilt-rotten person like me doesn’t like getting out of the cozy comforter unless highly necessary – but the craving for a delicious seafood dip often makes me leave the warm bed and head towards my favorite spot in the home other than the bed – my kitchen. Only last week, I bought some salt crackers and doritos from the store. I find it highly unfair to leave these crispy goodies in the pantry for long. So, in all fairness, I tried some shrimp dips at home that go just perfectly with the salt crackers. Even if you want to dip in and have them as is, you’re free to do it. No judging! Here, I’ve shared my favorite oh-so-cheesy shrimp dip that will make your tummy happy! This is an easy and delicious dip that puts your taste buds to test! You can even make this dip a day or two before serving it (in case you want to prep it for a large party). One of the essential steps for this shrimp recipe is to bake it to perfection.

Notes : Shrimps are a yummy delicacy so it’s important to ensure they’re clean, washed and deveined properly before you use them for the dip. Also, it’s important to ensure that you cook it for the right duration. If left undercooked, shrimps can taste awfully smelly. If overcooked, they can be tough, rubbery and lose flavor and yumminess. If you’re planning to cook for a large party, you can prepare the mixture ahead of time and refrigerate it. Bake it before serving, so it’s fresh and hot. If you ever get a chance to head out to a seafood bar and grill restaurant in a coastal area, you can definitely enjoy a tasteful, flavorsome, heartwarming shrimp meals that will dowse you into delicious goodness.
