Hot Shrimp, Crab or Crawfish Dip

July 25, 2021

2 ea. 8 oz. bars cream cheese (tempered and cubed)

½ stick of unsalted butter

¼ cup Booyah BBQ Shrimp Seasoning

½ lb. medium shrimp (peel, deveined, diced) – OR – thoroughly rinsed crab – OR – thoroughly rinsed crawfish

1 cup shredded or grated parmesan cheese

Heat skillet on low-medium heat.  Melt butter and saute shrimp until pink.  Reduce heat to low.  Add cream cheese and Booyah seasoning and fold in until creamy.  (Be careful not to overcook as cream cheese will break down and become grainy.)  Fold in parmesan cheese.  Pour into unbuttered baking dish (8 x 8 or 9 x 9) and bake at 400 degrees until bubbly.  About halfway through baking, more parmesan can be added to the top if preferred.  Serve with crusty French bread or pita points.  Can also thin the mixture with half & half to pour over nachos.
