How to Make Shrimp Cheese Ball


  • 1Mix all ingredients EXCEPT the nuts in a large mixing bowl. Refrigerate until it is cold enough to mold into a ball and hold its shape.
  • 2Divide into two large cheese balls or four smaller sized balls. Roll in chopped nuts until completely coated. (I am a nut fan, so I like to make sure there is a very heavy layer of nuts on each ball.)
  • 3Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and keep refrigerated. Serve with a variety of snack crackers.
  • 4Note: I use salad-size frozen shrimp, thawed, rinsed, and cut into smaller pieces, for a less fishy flavor. It does not have as long a shelf life, but I think the flavor exchange is worth it.
