2tsp.Old Bay Seasoningplus 1 tbsp. for boiling water
1tsp. black pepper
Bring water to a boil; season water with 1 tbsp. Old Bay Seasoning. Once boiling, add shrimp to the water and cook for 2-3 minutes or until pink. Remove shrimp from the boiling water and place into cold water/an ice bath to stop cooking.
Roughly dice/cut shrimp, dice celery and onion. Add to a bowl with softened cream cheese, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic powder, black pepper, and Old Bay Seasoning.
Mix and chill. Serve with crackers, sliced baguette, or the accompaniment of your choice.
Purchasing peeled, deveined shrimp saves you a considerable amount of time.
For easy mixing, make sure that your cream cheese is room temperature.
