Hot Shrimp Dip

Shrimp Dip

5 from 24 reviews

An easy to make mouthwatering cheesy shrimp dip with succulent shrimp, sharp cheddar, pepper jack, Old Bay Seasoning and garlic. Always one of my most popular party dips with tons of flavor.


  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded Pepper Jack cheese
  • 1/2 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 34 dashes hot sauce
  • 16 ounces shrimp cooked and coarsely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 green onions thinly sliced



  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Using a hand held mixer beat cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, 3/4 cup Pepper Jack cheese, Old Bay Seasoning, Worcestershire Sauce and hot sauce until smooth.  Stir in shrimp, garlic and green onions.
  3. Spoon into a baking dish and top with remaining cheddar and Pepper Jack.  Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the dish is bubbly and heated through.


  • Do you like everything with a little kick?  Swap out the Old Bay Seasoning (which is rather mild and smoky) and replace with cajun seasoning. You could also add a little finely minced jalapeno.
  • This dip can be prepped up to 24 hours in advance,  cover with plastic wrap and store in the fridge.  Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes prior to  baking to bring the casserole closer to room temperature.  Don’t forget to remove the plastic wrap before baking.
  • I like the medium to large shrimp for this recipe simply because they stay more moist when cooked and then baked.
  • Don’t over bake this dip.  Just bake long enough to melt the cheese and brown the edges.
  • For your low carb friends serve with cucumber rounds and celery sticks.
