Need a quick appetizer to bring to a holiday party or for game day? This Sriracha Shrimp Cheese Dip will have your friends and family scooping up for seconds!
Now that the holidays are about to be in full swing, we need an arsenal of quick and delicious recipes to make for those impromptu invitations. Whether it’s going over to the neighbors to watch Sunday Football or it’s a holiday potluck, most of us will want to bring a recipe that not only will impress, but will have everyone asking you for the recipe!
That’s exactly what this Sriracha Shrimp Cheese Dip is: rich, luscious, and cheesy! We tend to always have frozen shrimp in the freezer just for these occasions when you need to throw together a recipe. Lately, we’ve been trying some of the fish and seafood from Anderson Seafood and we can honestly, hands down recommend them as your one and only source for fresh seafood.
You can certainly use as much or as little hot sauce as you’d like. Switch it up and use Frank’s Red Hot Sauce or even some Tabasco! Also, you can use whatever shredded cheese. We used a blend of cheddar and mozzarella, but anything will work. Just remember, the more cheese, the merrier!
- 4 ounces shrimp, peeled, finely chopped
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 2 ounces sour cream
- 2 tablespoons Sriracha hot sauce
- 1 teaspoon white vinegar
- 3 ounces shredded cheese
- Preheat oven to broil. Spray baking dish with pan spray or oil.
- Over high heat in a medium sauté pan, cook the shrimp in olive oil or butter. This will only take 4-5 minutes. Do not overcook. Let shrimp cool.
- In the meantime, stir together cream cheese, sour cream, hot sauce, vinegar, and ONE ounce of shredded cheese. Reserve the rest of the cheese for the topping.
- Once shrimp is cooled, fold into cheese mixture and place into baking dish. Top with leftover shredded cheese.
- Broil for 3-4 minutes until warmed through and cheese on top is brown and bubbly.
- Serve immediately with celery sticks, crackers, and chips.
