Pink Recipe

This is a delicious dip to serve to company this holiday season. You can substitute lobster or crab for the shrimp and it will be just as yummy.

Shrimp Dip
1 8oz. package cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon lemon juice
dash of salt
1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
2 cups boiled, rough chopped medium shrimp

to prepare shrimp: cook in rapidly boiling salted water for four minutes. Watch them turn PINK! Rinse in cold water, then roughly chop and add to all other ingredients combined. Chill in refrigerator for at least one hour. Place in beautiful bowl
and garnish with red pepper slice and parsley sprig and serve with savory crackers.

I love your banner! And Shrimp, lobster or crab are always a favorite. My favorite version for crab and lobster is boiled and dipped in butter. But my favorite for shrimp is grilled. It is one of my new favorites! Yum! Happy Pink Saturday!
