This was my first shot at making shrimp dip, and it turned out rather well. I took other reviewers advice and cut down the mayonnaise, the worcestershire, and traded in some of the salt for garlic or onion powder instead. I used fresh parsley and frozen shrimp too. I would definitely add more shrimp than what is called for - otherwise you don't get meat in each bite. I hate rating a recipe I changed so much, but this is definitely a keeper!
I found this recipe to be extreamly salty using the amounts specified.
We decided to try this for New Year's Eve celebrations. As other reviewers have mentioned, what turns out to be a pinch over 1 tbls. of salt is WAY to much (and I like salty stuff!). Use onion powder in place of onion salt, and garlic powder in place of garlic salt, then only use about 1 tsp. celery salt, at most! In addition, 3 tbls. of Worcestershire sauce is over-powering to the point that the dip tastes like Worcestershire dip! At most, use 1 tbls. We added an additional can of shrimp to see if we could compensate for the flavor of the Worcestershire sauce with limited success! I truly believe with the reduction in salt and Worcestershire sauce, this dip would be outstanding.
I've taken this shrimp dip to several gatherings within the past year. It is immensely well received, and many have asked for the recipe. It disappears quickly, which tells me all I need to know. M.D. Grey
I found this dip to be way too salty for my taste. I think you really have to like worcestershire sauce A LOT to like this one.
It was awsome! When it was all gone, people was asking for more!
Way too salty. The only flavor tasted is the worchester.
This dip was awesome. My fiance and I both loved it and so did everyone else at the party. I will definitely make this one again, soon. I refrigerated it overnight before I served it.
