Cream cheese and butter are the base for this mildly spiced shrimp spread. This is a great dip for parties. It goes a long way and is served at room temperature so it does not have to be kept hot or cold. I usually serve it on thin wheat crackers.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 3/4 cup butter, softened
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 2 (4 ounce) cans shrimp, drained
- 1 tablespoon chopped onion
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
Place the butter and cream cheese into a medium bowl, and beat with an electric mixer. Add the shrimp, onion, lemon juice, garlic salt and mayonnaise; beat until fluffy. Cover and chill for several hours before serving. Allow the butter to come to room temperature before serving.
