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!
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.
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.
