Shrimp Squares

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

This is a great appetizer to serve at a shindig. If your shindig is just a casual get-together, you could substitute the canned baby shrimp for the medium shrimp and have the same taste results.

Very good. I made it just for DH as I am leaving town again soon, but wanted to make the recipes I said I'd make in remembrance of Amy before heading out. DH likes it so much he is wrapping it up to take to work tomorrow - hopefully it won't be too soggy. Very easy to make - I left the crescent base whole and assembled everything like a pizza. Wish my camera was working so I could have taken a picture.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Grease a large baking sheet and spread the crescent dough into one large rectangle, sealing the seams and perforations.
  3. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Using a pizza cutter, cut into 24 squares and cool completely on a wire rack.
  5. In a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, dill, and salt until smooth and creamy and spread onto each square.
  6. Spread each square with cocktail sauce and top with a shrimp if using the medium shrimp, or if using canned shrimp, divide among the squares.
  7. Top the shrimp with green pepper, onion and cheese.
  8. Cover and refrigerate for one hour before serving.
