Spicy Shrimp Dip
In a medium-sized sauté pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the chives, salt, chili pepper, and lemon zest; sauté for 2 minutes.
Reduce the heat to low and add the shrimp; sauté for 3 minutes or until opaque.
Transfer the mixture to a food processor and coarsely purée. Season with salt and pepper.
Firmly pack the purée into a small bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
To serve, remove the shrimp dip from the refrigerator and allow it to sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve the dip with an assortment of crackers and toast points or some favorite veggies.
Yields approx. 1 cup
There is no filler in this dip. It's shrimp, shrimp, and more shrimp. The butter binds it together and the rest of the ingredients give the shrimp a little zip.
