My recipe is basic but always gets eaten.  Spread whipped cream cheese on a plate. Top with some bottled cocktail sauce.  Add some drained and rinsed canned shrimp.  Finally sprinkle with some freshly shredded parmesan. Serve with crackers.

The recipe from @Auntg is quick, easy, and oh so yummy.  I forgot all about that one....I strongly recommend it.

 

Here is another one to file away and try sometime:

EASY SHRIMP DIP 
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese
1/4 c. mayonnaise
2 tbsp. chopped onions
2 tbsp. ketchup
1 can broken shrimp

 

Beat cream cheese, mayonnaise, onion and ketchup in small bowl on medium speed until fluffy. Beat in shrimp at low speed. Refrigerate. Remove from refrigerator for 15 minutes before serving. 2 cups dip. Great with bugles.

 

This is the one I like. Be sure to drain the shrimp. I always add a little Tabasco sauce, too. I've also been known to throw in a little garlic salt for more zip. This really is best served with Bugles. These:

This has so few ingredients that I think I will try it! I am bringing several apps to my son's house tonight. I really didn't want to go to the store again. So, thanks very muchQ Thanks to all who responded. They all sound really good!

Re: Easy shrimp dip?

@Marybella, just a couple more tips. Be sure to chop the onion very fine, and do take the dip out of the fridge for awhile before you serve it so it will be soft. Years ago I always just made this per the directions. But as my taste buds have died over the years (Ha!) I do taste it then tend to jazz it up a little with more spice, hot sauce or even a little more ketchup.

 

Hope it works for you! it is super easy.

@Marybella, and again, don't forget to DRAIN the can of shrimp!

I just whipped it up and it's good. I will add some more Tabasco and add a little garlic salt, too. Thank you, again!

Re: Easy shrimp dip?

Add some horseradish and/or Durkee's Famous sauce along with that hot sauce!  Chop some parsley or even celery leaves too--and I'm not against a sprinkle of celery salt too!
