This recipe is awesome . . . I have substituted imitation crab meat for the shrimp, which tastes wonderful, too. It's a favorite at our home for SaturdaySunday afternoon get-togethers, holidays, etc. Thanks for sharing!
This actually tasted a little sweet, I guess because of the cocktail sauce. I'd suggest adding some horseradish to the cocktail sauce to give it more of a kick. I think it would be better without the mozzarella, which just took away from the taste of the shrimp. There are so many appetizer recipes with cheese that I'd just prefer that you tasted the shrimp more.
I took this appetizer to a Christmas Party last night. Not only did it look festive, with the green onions and red tomatoes, it was delicious! Two other people asked me for the recipe!
A great change of pace from layerd bean dips! Very good. I don't think it really needs the tomato though, it just seems to make it wet. If you think it needs some color, maybe chopped red or yellow bell pepper would be an idea. I actually think I like it best with just the cream cheese, cocktail sauce and shrimp.
Made this recipe this weekend for a football tailgate. I did change it up a bit, using sour cream in the base along with the cream cheese to make it more "dip" friendly. I used the frozen shrimp as suggested and also removed the tomatoes and the mozz. cheese from the dip. It was great! I would make it again. A word to the wise, my wife thought thre was too much cocktail sauce so perhaps cutting back would be a good suggestion. Wonderful, thanks for the recipe!
Definately a keeper, however found the frozen baby shrimp to be tastier for this recipe instead of the canned. (Less of a fishy taste). Very good though!
I made this for Christmas Day, and we really enjoyed it! I just did the cream cheese mix, cocktail sauce, and frozen, small shrimp and left off the green onions, tomato, and shredded cheese, and I am glad I did, b/c I liked how it came out just fine. I think if I had added those other things, you wouldn't be able to get the shrimp flavor as much. Will make again!
