My Mom makes this for all family gatherings and it is always well received. I have never taken it anywhere that I didn't get several requests for the recipe. It is such a quick appetizer and sooo delicious. I hope you enjoy it!
- 1 lb cooked shrimp (chopped fine)
- 1⁄2 cup butter, softened
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 3 -4 tablespoons chopped scallions (or to taste)
- 1 -2 tablespoon lemon juice (or to taste)
- Mix well.
- Spread on your favorite crackers.
- Tastes better if it's made several hours before serving so flavors can blend.
Creamy Goodness! I added a few dashes of Old Bay Seasoning which added to its deliciousness ;) Thanks for the nice treat MamaJ!
This was amazing. Absolutely amazing, easy, fun, and the taste out of this world. I am not sure I knew what "shrimp butter" was until I saw twissis review, and knew we had to make it here, too. I followed this recipe exactly, except added a spot of garlic and Old Bay Seasoning as suggested by the other reviewers. Maryland and Old Bay go hand in hand. This is just great, and will make this often as this will make a nice treat for a Saturday evening after our work here on the farm during the day. I have some nice whole wheat crackers, and this was a perfect marriage. I steamed my shrimp, de/veined them, and peeled. Perfect! I think next time I might add some Tabasco, although just by itself this is one terrific recipe. Thank you, MamaJ!
Delightful!! I made this for my MIL while she was visiting ( no photo as I didn't have my camera back until last night - thankfully you have a great one from twissis). Everyone loved this and it was devoured! Thank you for a wonderful appy- I will definitely keep this recipe for company!!!
