    5 Layer Seafood Dip

    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    First (bottom) Layer:
    1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
    2 teaspoons horseradish
    1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
    4 teaspoons Miracle Whip mayonnaise
    2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

    Mix all ingredients together and spread in a clear, straight sided bowl. If you are making this dish for a large group, use a springform pan of the appropriate size.

    Second Layer:
    1 (12 ounce) bottle chili sauce or seafood cocktail sauce

    Spread the sauce evenly over cream cheese mixture.

    Third Layer:
    1 large bunch spring onions with green tops, finely minced (about 1/2 cup to taste)
    2/3 cup peeled, seeded, chopped cucumber, well-drained

    Sprinkle onions and cucumbers over second layer.

    Fourth Layer:
    3/4 pounds cooked shrimp

    Dice shrimp (or use the very small salad shrimp) and drain well on paper towels by placing paper towels on top and gently pressing to remove excess moisture. Gently sprinkle shrimp evenly over third layer.

    Fifth Layer:
    1 ounce (1/4 cup) grated cheddar cheese, to taste
    1/4 cup sliced Jalapeno peppers (optional)

    Sprinkle cheese around the edges. If you like hot dishes, place Jalapeno peppers in 4-inch circle in center; otherwise, omit them. Cover and refrigerate. Serve with crackers and spreading knife.

    Variation: Substitute 1 pound crab meat or 3 (6-1/4 ounces) cans crab meat for the shrimp. Remove any shell or cartilage and drain as directed above. In the first layer you could substitute Balsamic vinegar for the Worcestershire. No cucumber, use water chestnuts. You could also create a Tex-Mex variation of this with taco sauce, peppers, and taco meat. Have fun.
