Mini Shrimp Cocktail Appetizers

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 0 mins

From Kraftfoods(dot)com website. I made these for a party and I've had so many people request the recipe. Kraft calls for using finely chopped onions but I skipped that just to make it an even faster appetizer to get on the table.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 crackers (I have used Ritz & Cobblestone Wheat Crackers)
  • 13 cup whipped cream cheese spread
  • 13 cup seafood cocktail sauce
  • 16 large fresh shrimp, cooked (or pre-cooked frozen shrimp that has been thawed)
  • 13 cup finely chopped green onion (optional)


  1. Spread each cracker with 1 tsp of the cream cheese spread.
  2. Top evenly with the cocktail sauce and one shrimp.
  3. Sprinkle some of the finely chopped onions on top (if you desire).

These were a big hit. Certainly will make again. I removed the tails of shrimp to make appetizers much easier to eat..

What a great idea! I love all things that taste great, visually impress & are quick easy-fixes. Your recipe easily meets all my stds. I used Carr's Table Water Crackers because DH is salt-restricted & they don't alter the taste of their toppings w/other flavours, excess butter or seasonings. I also used Icelandic baby shrimp & 4-5 of them made nice little mounds on the slightly larger-than-normal crackers. The prep is so incredibly easy that I took all the "parts" w/us to visit my MIL & assembled the appys in her tiny work area she calls a kitchen w/just a sml fridge, sink & a few cabinets. She ate heartily & none were left. Made for ZWT-8 & thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
