  • Small or popcorn-sized raw shrimp

Shrimp Dip Recipe With Cream Cheese and Mayonnaise and Canned Shrimp


  • Canned tiny shrimp
  • Creamy cheese
  • Garlic salt
  • Mayonnaise
  • Black pepper 


  • Chop the canned shrimp and onion and transfer the mixture to a bowl. 
  • Add cream cheese and mayonnaise, and I would recommend using an electric blender to spread the mixture in the bowl evenly. 
  • Some people also try to add a miracle whip, but I would suggest not using it because it is not the right choice. After all, nothing can match the flavor of mayo. 
  • Try to use the green portion of onion to get better flavors. 
  • Add black pepper (Use the ground version of black pepper to spread the flavors evenly). 
  • Add garlic salt and blend the mix until you get a smooth finish. 
  • Also, remember to sprinkle black pepper while serving the dish with veggies or chips. 
  • Apart from sprinkling black pepper, remember to bring the cheese to room temperature as it will easily blend, and there would be no crystals remaining in the dish.
