Spicy Louisiana Shrimp Dip is so flavorful and easy to make you may even make this dip when you aren’t having any visitors.  The use of prepackaged shrimp lets you focus on other parts of the meal and leaves the cooking of seafood to SeaPak, who generously sponsored this post.

One of my favorite things about this dip is it combines a lot of flavors of my favorite creamy shrimp cajun pasta with toasted bread. Given how quickly the dip comes together it is a home run.

With this delicious SeaPak Shrimp Scampi I didn’t even need to add a lot of extra flavors to the dip. The garlic and seasonings are the perfect addition.  Plus, the dip is perfect to take outdoors if you’re having a backyard party.

It never hurts to keep a package or two of SeaPak in your freezer in case you have a rough day and just want dinner to be easy. Spicy Louisiana Shrimp Dip is a spicy, creamy dip with cajun spices that you can make in 30 minutes. It'll be the hit of your party!

It’s also a perfect way to get in one of your two USDA-recommended weekly servings of 4 ounces of seafood.  Shrimp is one of my favorite options for seafood because the flavor is so mild that both kids and adults love it.  It’s also incredibly easy to cook, in addition to being low-fat and healthy.

Basically, shrimp is like chicken because you can add countless sauces, seasonings, or flavors and adapt it to pretty much any cuisine.  A good example of this is today’s recipe, where I used a shrimp scampi and adapted it to a cajun shrimp dip.

  1. This was awful! Way too much lemon and cream cheese not enough shrimp! One cup of red sweet pepper is over powering and you didn’t mention anything about salt! I had to add some to make it better. My roommate didn’t like it either so we had to pitch! One Tblsp. of lemon juice would have been plenty without the zest! So disappointed! I usually love Sea Pak, but this shrimp wasn’t very tasty! Sorry, but it’s a no go for me!

  2. So first time I made this I followed instructions, but did not want to loose all the scampi flavor so a lot of the sauce was added, so yeah, it was little soupy but tasted awesome. Next time, I decided to cook the shrimp in scampi sauce first! Took them out of pan and chopped then added to dip mixture. (I did not pour the liquid from pan in dip) This way the shrimp had a ton of flavor and the dip was not runny. Perfect!! The whole family loved it!

    1. I’ve not tested freezing it yet but I’m afraid that it might not mix well after being frozen. Your best bet to have it ready ahead of time would be to put everything together except for the shrimp a day or two ahead. Then when you’re ready to serve, add the shrimp in and finish it. Hope this helps!
