I woke up today, and I wanted dip for lunch. I knew that I needed to hit the grocery store for a few essentials, so I browsed the aisles trying to come up with an idea for a shrimp dip. I knew I would need cream cheese and mayonnaise just to get started, but I wanted it to be zesty. I picked up lemon juice and cilantro (because cilantro is awesome, of course), and I got a pound of shrimp from the seafood department. I wasn’t sure how this would turn out, but I had time on my hands. Let’s give this a go.
The overall presentation of the dip is beautiful. I love how it came out! I topped it with a dash of cayenne pepper, diced tomatoes, and fresh cilantro for a little something extra. Since I bought pre-cooked shrimp at the market, I saved a ton of time. I love shrimp, but I do hate peeling and deveining.
