Formula 382 FAS3TECH® owner and part-time gourmet cooking student Arlene Spellberg shares a delicious seafood snack. Her Zippy Shrimp and Crab spread is quick and easy to prepare from staples you can keep on board. This is a great appetizer to munch on while you're waiting for your salmon to slow grill. Thanks, Arlene!
2 8-ounce packages - Cream cheese softened
1 teaspoon - Seasoned salt
1 teaspoon - Worcestershire® sauce
1/2 teaspoon - Onion powder
1 12-ounce bottle - Seafood sauce
1 tablespoon - Prepared horseradish
12-ounces - Frozen or canned baby shrimp or crab & shrimp mix (1/2 & 1/2 – 6 oz. of each)
Minced parsley or scallions - For garnish
Beat cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in seasoned salt, Worcestershire sauce and onion powder. Spread onto a 13 inch plate (like a pizza crust - with a bit of an outside edge). Mix the seafood sauce and horseradish in a small bowl. Spread on top of the cream cheese mixture. Top with the seafood and garnish. Serve with assorted crisp crackers.
Carryon tip: Arlene likes to make this dip in advance in a plastic pie plate with a lid (like Tupperware®). She keeps on board in the refrigerator and pulls out for snack time, using the lid for crackers.
