This recipe and a crab dip, went around in the 1970's. I have made it every Christmas since. The original recipe called for canned shrimp but i hate the stuff, so I use cooked baby shrimp instead. The tomato soup in it sounds wierd, but believe me, u can't taste it, and mixed with the cream cheese and mayo, it has the perfect shrimp color. The seasonings have evolved over the years and I think they are now perfect. The original recipe had none. I hope u enjoy this dip as much as my family and friends do. Instead of a 5 cup mold, I make it in 12-16 oz container to share with family & friends.

How to Make Layered Shrimp Dip

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix together water & gelatin and set aside to soften. Next I chop my veggies in a food processor, it gets them the right size faster than old hands..lol..
    In medium sized saucepan heat soup and whisk in gelatin. Cool a bit and then whisk in creamed cheese and mayonaise. Stir in celery, green onions, and spices. Coursly chop shrimp up a bit but do NOT add it to tomato mixture. Spray a 5 cup mold with cooking spray. spread 1/4 of the shrimp in the bottom of mold, Then 1/4 of the tomato mixture over it. Repeat to make 4 layers of shrimp and tomato mixture, starting and ending with shrimp. Cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 3-4 hours. Unmold on serving plate and put crackers all around it. We like the with veggie crackers and sourdough bread pieces. I hope u enjoy this dip. It's delicious.
  2. You can make a crab version of this dip by using cream of celery or mushroom soup, and some old bay seasioning and use crab instead of shrimp. I am still partial to the shrimp though.
