Beryl Stokes: Hi and welcome to Cajun Cooking TV tonight. Tonight I’m going to make a quick party dip; it’s a Shrimp Dip and so let’s gets started.
First we have a few simple ingredients, I’ve a half a pound of boiled shrimp here they’re already boiled and peeled before me. We have all those in a shrimp bowl with some salt and garlic; I have some chopped green onions, I’ve one stalk finely stalk celery here, I have some sour cream and a block of cream cheese and some ketchup and some horseradish stalks.
So, first I had my food processor here this is a dip, so we wont to shrimp to be finally chopped, so I’m just going pour these in the food processor and then I’m going to pouring some of these green onions, because I want them to be chopped that finally, we just standing and see them basically. And then I put a little bit a ketchup maybe a tablespoon of ketchup is going to help to turn the cream cheese to a pinkish colour, that’s about a tablespoon and then I have some horseradish for heat, this going to give it a good flavor. This is maybe half a teaspoon. I don’t want it too hot, we want to put it in this whole block of cream cheese, and you just going to cut this up into smaller pieces and that way in.
Okay topper some sour cream, they help a dip is about a quarter cup right there. Okay I’m not going to put the celery in just yet. So put the lid on and we’re going to close this, to get raw mix. Okay now lets cook, look at that, all the shrimp are copped, but we do want to pour item to much as much as possible. Now I’m going to put it into the mixing bowl. This is one of my favorite dips to bring the work whenever we have a little function all the girls want me to make this and I have made it in a long time for themselves this is the way we treat. So mix it in the celery now, you certainly want a salt and pepper to taste, I’m just going to put a little sprinkle attorneys in here, just a little I don’t want it too hot for every body and see how this is just easy to mix up that sour cream helps soften it up and this is a good dip consistency.
I’m going to pour it in a pretty bowl, crystal bowl here, spread it around. Alright, we’re going to just garnish it with a few more chopped green onions for colour and there we go, we’ve a simple and easy shrimp dip and I’m going to serve it with these little mini - for tea toast, you can do it with any kind of cracker you like so this is been Cajun cooking TV the recipe, four recipes on a website Cajuncookingtv.com and we’ll see you next time.
