Niki’s Dad’s Famous Shrimp Dip

I have this very good friend who makes this amazing shrimp dip. It’s her father’s recipe and until now, she’s kept it under lock and key.

I and many of our friends have asked her for it over and over, but she’s refused to share… until now. You have no idea how excited this makes me.  This is seriously some of the BEST dip ever.

With the holidays coming up, everyone goes to parties and get togethers, and everyone always feels like they should bring something. Bring THIS!

Below is a Reblog of her Blog: Geaux Gillikin: A little Louisiana with a touch of California

“Daddy’s Shrimp Dip….nough’ said.

A family favorite, this shrimp dip will surely be a hit for your family and friends. My daddy’s name is Mark Blanchard and this is his recipe. My family and friends have a lot of great recipes that I hope to share with you!
Anyhow,  I use to beg my dad to make this dip for any and every family function or get together. I guess he finally got tired of it because he gave me the recipe so that I could make it myself.  Little did I know I would soon know just how he felt. I made this for a girls trip to Biloxi, Mississippi one summer and have not stopped hearing about it and being asked for the recipe since that trip. You don’t too much hear about the drunken girls at the casino’s , the planking , nor the jumping..or falling off the bed….but one thing about that trip that will always be mentioned each and every time….. Daddy’s  shrimp dip. It gets requested a lot!

That said…I know a few of my girlfriends will be extremely happy to see this post!


                                     1 Can of Medium Deveined  Shrimp
                                     8 Ounces of Cream Cheese
                                     3 tbs of Mayonnaise or “My-Nez”, like I say it!
                                     1/2 tsp Lemon Juice
                                     1/4 cup of Green Onions- finely chopped
                                     1 tsp Worcester Sauce
                                     Garlic powder and Tony’s Chachere’s -to taste

Take a close look at the shrimp you use. It must be Medium sized -Deveined.

Here is my little bit of California and Louisiana in this recipe!!
Okay so you put all ingredients in a bowl and mash up…you’re gonna need to use some elbow grease! Make sure all the shrimp gets mashed up and none stays whole.
Refrigerate over night to let the flavors combine. I know you’re ready to dig in now, but this part is crucial! This is what your finished product should look like. Serve with wheat thins.
Try this dip. Seriously. You want to!
It’s A…M…A…Z…I…N…G!
(And yes, I was on the fated Girl’s Trip. What a great time. We need to do another!)
