Among the range of seafood, shrimp is a favourite of many across the globe. It can be flavoured and prepared in multiple ways. The small fleshy seafood is savored like snacks, generally made during the evening. Be it a poolside party, kitty party or a family get together, shrimps can be prepared quite easily to the delight of both the cook and the guests.
Besides cooking for the guests, the dishes can also be ready for an intimate family setting. Shrimps and prawns are available hugely in the market with the aid of some best shrimp providers. Their packaging, storage, and cleaning process are hygienic and reliable for the buyer. Frozen shrimps can be used for making snacks. One of the best delicacies in this form is Louisiana shrimp dip. Pizzas, pasta, or dip types of food are an all-time favourite of children. So to hit it with one’s own cooking skills, let’s proceed to the steps for preparing the snack.
Assemble the ingredients:
- 500 grams of shrimp.
- 1/4 minced green onions.
- 1 red bell pepper minced.
- 8 ounces of cream cheese.
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice.
- Zest one lemon.
- 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning.
- 2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce.
- 1 sourdough bowl bread.
Now, let’s prepare it!
The whole preparation is best done in a microwave oven. At first, preheat the oven at 375 degrees. Meanwhile, unwrap the packaged shrimp and defrost it under tap water. It must be noticed whether the shrimps are deveined and tails removed. If not, then cleaning those has to be done. Simultaneously, in a bowl, add the ingredients mentioned, viz, minced green onions, red bell pepper, mayonnaise, cream cheese and parmesan cheese, lemon juice, and the chopped shrimps. Vegetables or mushrooms of one’s own choice can also be added in the dip. Mix and stir the ingredients well so that the creamy texture arrives, and all the items blend well.
Lemon is added to give the shrimps a certain kind of softness. To pour the dip, now prepare the sourdough bread. Cut the top of the loaf and scoop out from within the bread until the wall is half inches thick. Before pouring the dip inside the bread, add the Worcestershire sauce and a pinch of salt and Cajun spices for flavours. Mix it well again and pour inside the sourdough bowl. Now bake the whole thing for about 20 minutes until the bread turns light brown. After the preparation is over, put out the dip from the oven and season with lemon zest, Cajun spices, or chili flakes on the top and serve with fries, biscuits, or other ingredients. The dip undoubtedly looks yum and tastes so too. The evening seems all set with such dishes alongside.
Children fight over pasta or pizza even when at home. In this global lockdown scenario, cooking itself has gained access to the next level. So for mothers to rest their children, the above-mentioned recipe is an easy one to accomplish with minimal ingredients available easily at the Market.
