My mom always made this when we had company. Any leftovers are superb on toasted bagels the next morning!

This recipe is great. Easy to put together, and so tasty. The cream cheese and butter was a good base. I grated my onions to get most of the onion juice into the recipe. The lemon added that punch and freshness to the whole. Be sure to rinse the canned shrimp before using. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe.
