Creamy Parmesan Shrimp Dip is a warm, cheesy dip full of shrimp. This easy to make party dip is a must for your next get together. It tastes heavenly smeared on fresh toasted baguette.
A simple roux and some heavy cream form the base of this creamy dip. There’s also garlic, green onions, a little Cajun seasoning, red pepper flakes, sour cream, and a whole lot of Parmesan cheese.
You’ll want to shred your own Parmesan cheese for this recipe. The flavor is so much better.
The raw shrimp get added just before the dip is placed in the oven. Chop them into bite-sized pieces to make the dip easier to scoop. The dip comes out of the oven with a bubbly, golden coating of cheese on top. Creamy Parmesan Shrimp Dip goes great with toasted baguette or tortilla chips.
If you have any leftovers, try topping your scrambled eggs with a little spoonful for breakfast. So, so good! I’m thinking about making a creamy shrimp dip every week just so I can have some on my eggs. It tastes better than any gourmet breakfast I’ve had at a restaurant.
