I followed other suggestions and added old bay seasoning and regular shrimp and I love cilantro so I was very disappointed with the results, we all tried it but ended up throwing it out....

Great dip! I love the flavor of the cilantro. I accidentally confused this recipe with another and added a packet of italian dressing mix. It sounds funny- I thought it sounded funny, but I did it anyway. Surprisingly they go quite well together and I think I'll keep making it like this. I've made four shrimp dips today and this (with modification) is the best by far!

easy and great original taste with cilantro.

add alittle ranch along with the cilantro, it was sort of bland till then

This was so-so. My guests and I really didn't care for it that much - not that flavorful or interesting. I used 12oz thawed frozen shrimp. I didn't puree it, but chopped the shrimp & cilantro finely. Maybe pureeing it makes it better.

It's good- nothing extremely spectacular- I love cilantro but didn't find that it made a major impression here- I added old bay and that added some flavor- an easy quick dip but nothing super exciting or different

Instead of cilantro I used Parsley.. And added horseradish..
