Hot & Spicy Shrimp Dip

"My family's Beach Vacation Fun Dip. We eat this at the pool or while playing cards. A recipe to try at least one time and you'll be hooked. This dip will keep in the fridge for 1 week, But I doubt it will last 1 day!"

  1. This recipe is a good one, with some tweaking. Most people nowadays watch their salt, so 3 and 1/2 tsp. of salt ingredients and bacon, and cheese, worcestershire and Tabasco just add up to way too much salt! Whew! What I did was to omit the salt and the garlic salt, and use 3/4 tsp. garlic powder instead. I used only 1 tsp. of Old Bay. I omited the bacon because I wanted to taste the shrimp only. Personal preference. 1 tsp of dry mustard was enough for me. Mine is super hot. I left out curry and basil. I aslo used 4 oz of horseradish cheddar instead of pepper jack. Geez, I've almost changed the entire recipe, but not really. What I did was to use some common sense and taste as I gradually add the saltier ingredients, instead of dumping them in blindly. The art of cooking is about making adjustments for our personal tastes, and finding inspiration in the recipes that are posted. Be creative! This is a good recipe! It was the comment about a beach vacation family favorite that made me want to try it despite the lower reviews. Who doesn't want to pretend they're at the beach. Cheers!
  2. I seem to be more sensitive to salt these days, so this may not have been a good choice for me. I omitted the salt and used less than half the amount of worcestershire, garlic salt and Old Bay and still the dip was too salty for me. I used about a quarter of the mustard and curry powder as well, based on my tasting as I added ingredients and on personal preference. I used mayo instead of Miracle Whip and ended up adding more jack cheese, mayo, cream cheese and sour cream to cut the saltiness. I also omitted the basil as a personal preference.
  3. I took this to a gathering of friends. It was barely touched and no one tried a second cracker of it....
