Peggy's Shrimp Dip

Fran Miller


Peggy never forgot her extended family, no matter how ill she was or how strapped for cash she eventually became. She would spend MONTHS crocheting slippers for her sisters, nieces, cousins, and other family members. Peggy also was a fabulous cook. This recipe was one she often brought to the big family Christmas Party, always held the first Saturday in December. Rest in peace, Peggy. You are well-loved. =^..^=

How to Make Peggy's Shrimp Dip


  • 1Rinse the shrimp in a colander and drain well. Pat dry with a paper towel, if necessary.
  • 2Mix all ingredients, EXCEPT the shrimp, together well with a large fork. (I use the seldom-used meat fork from my silverware set.) You can add a Tablespoon of milk, if it is too thick to mix.
  • 3Stir in the drained shrimp.
  • 4Refrigerate AT LEAST two hours before serving. Serve with Sociables or other savory crackers. Refrigerate leftovers (if it ever happens).
  • 5It is also easy to make a 1/2 batch of this Shrimp Dip for evening snacking. Enjoy!
