This recipe was delish! Instead of using canned shrimp, I purchased some fresh shrimp and sauteed them in a little butter, salt and pepper and then diced them up and threw them much better than the ordinary can...

was ok. I followed recipe exactly and was too bland for my taste. I added about a tablespoon of old bay and some extra salt and pepper to give a little more flavor. Thank you tho; love to try new recipes, whether I care for them when they are done, or not

Go ahead and add the whole packet of Italian seasoning. It's delicious.

I usually don't look at the "simple" recipes, but this one is GREAT! I did "cheat" and used fresh shrimp...I also tossed in some fresh crabmeat that was available (now) in my store's seafood section. The dip was fabulous. Try serving it with little Belgium Endive leaves on the side (along with crackers) for a light and healthy appetizer, as well as some celery sticks for dipping.

This is really quick! I used a pound of fresh shrimp, chopped coarsly instead of the canned shrimp. My husband could not get enough of it! Very easy and tasty.

I made this for Thanksgiving, I heard a couple of people say it was good. I will probably make it again if requested. I did use fresh shrimp but I think the italian dressing took something out of the shrimp taste I was expecting.

Very easy and had a lot of flavor. I made this for my son's birthday party and everyone loved it. Living in South Louisiana, I was able to buy fresh boiled shrimped at the store. The spices from the shrimp and the Italian dressing mix worked so good together. I plan on making this for another party this weekend.

This is so quick & easy and tastes as if you stayed in the kitchen for hours. A real crowd pleaser, too! Diane
