This dip was inspired by the fact that I had cooked shrimp in my freezer and I found it did not taste great when eaten as the main ingredients to a dish so I opted to hide it in a dip. There are not many recipes out there for a shrimp dip, but I was pleased by what Whole Foods had to offer.
I halved the recipe since I was short on shrimp but I loved the medley of flavors with acidity from lemons, a kick from hot sauce, and bits of shrimp strewn throughout. I also liked that it kept in my fridge well for a few days and only tasted better the more it rested.
•1/2 pound cooked, peeled shrimp
•4 green onions, roughly chopped
•8 ounces Neufchâtel cheese, at room temperature
•1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
•1 1/2 teaspoons hot sauce
•1/2 lemon, zest and juice of
•1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
Simply place in a food processor until shrimp is chopped. Stir and place in container in the refrigerator.
