Appetizer Wednesdays

Here is another one of my favorites. Shrimp Spread. Some people call it shrimp pizza, shrimp dip, we call it shrimp spread. This is another easy recipe.

Bottom layer:

1- 8oz cream cheese
1 1/2 T. Worcestershire sauce
3/4 T. lemon juice
3 T. grated onion
1 T. Mayo
Mix together and spread on a 10 inch plate. Cover with Cocktail sauce. Sprinkle with 1 can tiny shrimp. Can be found by the canned meat at the grocery store. You can also use crab meat.

WaLa~ YUM-ME!~ chill and serve with crackers.
