This creamy, delicious shrimp dip is the perfect easy appetizer to feature on a charcuterie board — amazing when served with a glass of wine! 

I’m excited to partner with Nobilo Wines and the Marine Stewardship Council to bring you this incredible recipe. 

This simple appetizer is loaded with award-winning flavor you’ll love. I grew up on an island so fresh seafood is a taste I always crave. It reminds me of being home in my grandma’s kitchen.

Cold and creamy, our favorite shrimp dip recipe reminds me of my Southern grandma’s classic homemade recipe. This old-fashioned dip is the best. 

Frozen shrimp, cream cheese, sour cream, mayo combine with green onion, celery, garlic and seasoning for the most amazing easy appetizer. (For another classic appetizer, try these cucumber bites.)

Since it’s made fresh from scratch, you can make it a little more spicy if you’d like. You could also add a little cheese if you want. 

It’s the ideal addition to our ultimate charcuterie board, especially when paired with an amazing, chilled glass of Nobilo Wines. I guarantee you’ll love the amazing seafood taste of this yummy shrimp dip! 

During the summer, we love to entertain family and friends. Our house has become a go-to spot for gatherings. I thoroughly enjoy creating delicious menus and drink ideas to serve our guests. It’s the perfect way to relax and escape the daily routine.

One of my favorite summertime menu ideas is a charcuterie board. It’s so simple to combine all the best flavors — plus, I love not having to warm up the kitchen. It’s a great option for last minute guests, too. 

Of course, with good food, you need a good wine. That’s where Nobilo Wines comes in. They help you celebrate life’s simple pleasures in a sustainable way!

Nobilo offers a classic, sustainably grown Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand: fresh, crisp, refreshing, citrusy, with tropical fruit flavours. A perfect pairing for seafood!

Not only will you love the amazing flavor, but you’ll also enjoy great value for the price. You can find it in the New Zealand section at retailers across Canada including LCBO, Sobeys, and Loblaws (Ontario), BC Liquor Stores and private retailers (BC).

After picking up your Nobilo Wines, you’ll want to make a quick stop at the seafood counter. Thanks to the Marine Stewardship Council, you can enjoy a world of wild seafood, that’s certified sustainable so it’s good for the oceans, too.

When you’re shopping, just look for the MSC blue fish label. You’ll find it at hundreds of fresh, frozen, and canned products at hundreds of grocery stores. There are all types of seafood to enjoy: cod, haddock, salmon, tuna, sweet shrimp and more. 

You’ll find MSC products at Loblaws, Whole Foods Markets, Costco, Walmart, Sobeys, and other retailers.

Once you have your ingredients, it’s time to head home and create something delicious.

You can make it a little more spicy with extra seasoning or horseradish, too. You could also add in a little cheese if you’d like. Some folks like a cheesy dip. 

I really like using whipped cream cheese because it helps the dip come together even faster. 

No matter what you add in, you’ll love how quick and easy it is to make from scratch in only a few minutes!

How to Make Shrimp Dip

Our homemade shrimp dip recipe is the best appetizer for any party. Southern grandmas really do know what they’re doing in the kitchen! 😉 It’s so simple! 

Start by chopping the shrimp, green onion, celery, red bell pepper, and mincing garlic. Set aside.

Then, mix sour cream, whipped cream cheese, mayo, and lemon juice together. Add the ingredients you previously chopped, then add celery salt and Sriracha sauce.

Once everything is mixed, put in a serving bowl. Top with a few chopped red bell peppers and green onions. You also add a few chopped pieces of shrimp as well. 

Leave in the fridge until you’re ready to serve.

What to Serve with Shrimp Dip

I serve this shrimp dip on a charcuterie board with bread and crackers for dipping. 

How Long Does Shrimp Dip Last in the Fridge?

You can keep this shrimp dip in the fridge for three to four days after making it. 

Can I Freeze Shrimp Dip?

Yes, you can! Put any leftover dip into a well-sealed, airtight container. You can store in the freezer for two to three months. Just take out to thaw before you’re ready to serve. 

If you don’t eat it all immediately, you’ll want to put it in the fridge again until you do.
