Doreen's StoryI used to make this in a mold but lately I have just been serving it in a decorative bowl since it goes like lightening. I have learned from experience, when you make and bring this dip somewhere, bring several copies of the recipe with you...it's that good. Enjoy !
**** This dip must be made the day before. It needs time to set.
cream cheese, room temperature
onion, chopped fine
celery stalks, chopped fine
1 1/2 lb
shrimp, cooked & cooled ( i use cocktail shrimp or medium shrimp cut into small pieces)

1Dissolve gelatin in the warm water. Set aside for a few minutes while you mix other ingredients.
2Mix tomato soup and cream cheese with electric mixer. Add onion and celery and shrimp. Now mix in gelatin & water mixture that has now become thickened. Last, add in the mayonnaise. Refrig. over night. Serve with crackers. I use Ritz ! Enjoy !
3If you are going to put this dip into a mold ( I used to use a mold in the shape of a fish ) then spray the inside of your mold with non-stick cooking spray and pour your dip into it and then refrig. overnight. I would dip the bottom of my mold into a sink filled with two inches of hot water and then unmold my dip. I'd place lettuce around the place before I unmolded the dip to decorate it up a little. With a couple of slices of lemon as added decoration.
