My old boss from the frame shop would bring this to all of our work parties. All of us girls just loved it!

I like to use a bunch of green onions instead of a small onion. It tastes really good, and that's how I prefer it.

This was really just scribbled on a piece of paper! And I needed to put in recipe order! :)

How to Make SHRIMP SPREAD

Step-by-Step

  • 1This seemed strange to me the first time I did this, but it works!
  • 2Soak the shrimp in ice water for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • 3While the shrimp are soaking, cream the mayo and cream cheese together. I use my mixer to get it nice and smooth. Mix in the onion.
  • 4Drain the water off of the shrimp, and squeeze out excess water. I do this in my hands. Then gently shred the shrimp, and mix into the cream cheese and mayo.
  • 5Chill!
    Spread on your favorite crackers!
  • 6Enjoy!

    Very addictive!
