The first time I made this it was very watery. When I made it the second time I left out the oil and it was much less watery and just as delicious! This is a great dip! I buttered little french bread rounds and grilled them. then I put a pile of the dip on top with a sprinkle of extra cheese and broiled them a couple minutes. FANTASTIC and a big hit! Not one remained.

I read all the other reviews before I made this dish. I drained the shrimp extra well and laid the onion and bell pepper out on paper towel to remove all the excess water as well. I ommitted the oil and it STILL came out runny and watery. The dish's flavor is great, but I will not make it again because of the way it came out. Good luck if you try it. I would love to know how to make it and it not be watery.

Recipe was great! I think the people who had theirs come out watery must have been using frozen shrimp that were not thawed all the way. Use fresh shrimp if yuo can find them. I sauted the onion and pepper first to soften them, then added the shrimp and seasoning just to blend the flavors. I recommend this. Next time I'll try it with Paul Prudhome seasoning instead of OLd Bay, but it was great like it is written.

This was a great recipe however I used frozen shrimp from Trader Joe's and would suggest draining the water and even squeezing the shrimp to avoid a "watery" dip. Mine was a bit watery, but every party goer raved about it!

My family loved it! The next time I make it I'll use no oil because it was watery and less garlic. My family wants to try it again. Thank you.

To solve the watery problem with this recipe, lay shrimp out on paper towels to get rid of extra moisture. Then coat Shrimp, onion and green peppers with 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch. I omitted the salt and and would probably cut down on the onions in the future. Good taste and a nice change to the usual cream cheese based recipe.

I made this for Father's Day and my family loved it! I doubled the recipe and had none left. I omitted the oil, as someone else suggested, and also omitted the extra salt, since Old Bay is already so salty. It was great! Thanks!
