  1. On a large dinner plate, spread cream cheese to edge of plate. The cheese should be spread to about a 1/4 inch to 1/3 inch thickness. Pour cocktail sauce in center of plate, leaving a 1-inch ring around the edge of cream cheese. Make a pile of the shrimp by covering the cocktail sauce.
  2. Arrange crackers by sticking them standing up into the cream cheese ring around the edge. Place them tight like dominos around the entire plate.

This was a big hit at a party I had! I used pre-packaged frozen, already peeled shrimp with the tails still on, and it took no time at all to put together. IDEAL for someone who doesn't cook, but wants to bring a dish! Thanks for the recipe!



I have made this same recipe for several years. If you use canned tiny shrimp you can get more flavor and sooooo easy. Do not put the crackers into the cream cheese. Just have them separate then they will not get soggy.



very good dip. i didnt like the sound of it, but it turned out very tasty. i made mine a little different, i mixed the shrimp and cocktail sauce, and layered that over the cream cheese, then sprinkled shredded parmesan on top then added chopped green onions. i will definitely make this super easy dip again!
