A savory dip loaded with cheese, cream cheese, garlic, and shrimp. Shrimp Scampi Dip is the perfect appetizer for any occasion and tastes just like an ultra creamy, cheesy version of the delicious and buttery garlic shrimp favorite.
This morning is not really going as planned.
My kids are on a 2-hour delay. Which basically throws every routine you ever established out the freaking window.
I’m over here at my desk with my coffee trying to type and my oldest is talking at me about some kind of video he thinks is hilarious but in actuality is probably not that funny unless you are a 14 year old boy.
But if it is funny that still does not negate the fact that I need to tell you all about Shrimp Scampi Dip, NOT Shia LaBeouf featured as a scary monster in the woods on YouTube.
This recipe has been rolling around in my head for awhile and finally I got in the kitchen to work it out. It DID work out, unlike this crazy excuse for a productive morning.
What’s happening here is shrimp scampi mixed with cream cheese, an Italian cheese blend, and Greek yogurt. I also added just a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and some chopped marinated artichokes. It’s a pretty addictive combo.
We skipped dinner when I made this and basically just hovered over the stove with a loaf of baguette.
This is a perfect appetizer for game days. But since I don’t know the first thing about any of the games (like seriously I am clueless) I will be serving it at my first attempt at grown up dinner parties next weekend. I think it will be a hit.
1. I'd recommend full fat, regular cream cheese with this recipe. Low fat cream cheese can sometimes add more liquid to a recipe and will make it a thinner consistency. As an Amazon Associate and member of other affiliate programs, I earn from qualifying purchases.
