Growing up, I remember shrimp cocktail being at so many family get-togethers. And let’s be honest, it grossed me out bad. I’ve never been a big fan of picking up the cold shrimp and dipping it into cocktail sauce. Even just writing that kind of grosses me out. But…as an adult I have really come to love the flavors. It’s a classy appetizer that always always makes me think of my grandparent’s house. A simpler time filled with family, laughter, and good food!

To deal with my whole cold shrimp aversion, I’ve put my own spin on this throwback recipe, and of course, added cheese!

Hot Shrimp Cocktail Dip is the old and new world colliding into one creamy, melty, HOT, delicious dip.

All the flavors that I’ve grown to love from traditional Shrimp Cocktail Dip, mixed with everything I love about how I cook my appetizers!
