How to make Hot Shrimp Dip
Start by preheating your oven 350F, and you’ll need a 8×6 inch oven proof baking dish to bake the dip in.
If using frozen shrimp make sure it’s fully thawed and properly drained first, then cut it into small pieces and set aside.
Drain the pimientos and add to the same bowl.
If your cream cheese is not at room temperature and soft then microwave it on the reheat setting for a short time to soften it a little.
Add the chopped green onions, garlic, parmesan, and Creole Seasoning blend to the bowl with the pimientos and shrimp and mix well to combine.
Pour the shrimp dip mixture into your oven proof baking dish and bake for 15- 20 minutes or until the dip is hot all the way through and the shrimp (if using raw) is fully cooked.

Shrimp – we used already cooked shrimp for the photos here, but, this recipe is much, much better with raw shrimp as they are generally more flavorful when the shrimp is cooked in the dip. But frozen cooked shrimp still works if you are in a rush!
