Hot Louisiana Shrimp Dip Recipe

Hot Louisiana Shrimp Dip Recipe – This Louisiana Hot Shrimp Dip is delicious and super easy to make. Juicy shrimp are cooked with traditional Creole flavours, cream cheese, sour cream, green onions and bell peppers to make this warm dip.



3 green onions/salad onions
1 red bell pepper/red capsicum
1/2 stick butter
1 lb raw shrimp (peeled and cleaned) (see note 1 for sizes)
2 crushed garlic cloves
1 cup cream cheese
3 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp creole seasoning (See note 2)
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp lemon juice
salt to taste


  1. Chop the spring onion and red capsicum into small dice/rings. Reserve the green part of the spring onion for later.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan over a medium heat.
  3. Add the vegetables to the butter, stir to coat and then cook over a medium heat for 4-5 minutes until softened.
  4. Chop the shrimp meat into small chunks. Either in half or thirds if your shrimp are jumbo.
  5. Add in the prawns and garlic, stir well and cook for 2 minutes until the prawns have turned pink.
  6. Stir in the cream cheese, sour cream and creole seasoning.
  7. Bring to a simmer and then cook for 2 minutes until everything is thick and creamy.
  8. Stir in the lemon juice and parsley then check the seasoning.
  9. Serve garnished with the reserved spring onion greens and a little extra parsley.


For this shrimp dip I choose smaller shrimps. Ideally looking at something that comes in at 40/50 count.
