Hosting our monthly book club meeting tonight was so much fun.   We discussed the book “Before we were yours” by Lisa Wingate. Delicious appetizers and wine made the gathering even better.  One of the appetizers that I served my guests was a delicious cheesy Cajun shrimp dip.  It was creamy with the perfect hint of spice.

Cheesy Cajun Shrimp Dip


1 lb. medium shrimp, peeled, deveined, and chopped

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

3 tbsp. white wine

1 red bell pepper chopped

4 cloves of garlic finely chopped

½ of small red onion diced

1 cup parmesan cheese

1 cup mozzarella cheese

¼ cup cream cheese

¼ sour cream

1 tsp red pepper flakes

1 tbsp Cajun seasoning

Salt and pepper

Parsley flakes to decorate


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

In a skillet, add the oil over medium heat.  Add the red bell pepper and the red onion, cook for about 2 to 3 minutes.

Add salt, pepper, pepper flakes, and Cajun spice.  Stir in the shrimp and the white wine, and cook until the shrimp are pink.

Add the sour cream and the cheeses.

Pour the mixture into a baking dish, sprinkle with parsley flakes.  Bake until lightly browned and bubbly.  Serve with crackers.


  1. Thank looks so good. I know that this is cajun but with my background I want to try it with a little habanero too. Would love to see this at my boom club.

  2. This looks like a perfect appetizer! My mom is extremely allergic to shellfish, so this is the kind of thing I like to make for my dad whenever he comes to visit without her. I’ll have to try that next time I get a chance!

  3. This looks nice. I have tasted shrimps. My friend loves it. So, this link is going to her inbox , she will follow your recipe and prepare it 🙂

  4. One of my favourite recipes from now on! So easy and quick! I’m not a cooking enthusiast so anything easy quick and tasty is my moto hehe

  5. Tried seafood but haven’t had a taste of shrimp yet. But would love it…if it looks this good in a dip. Good enough, I love dips!

  6. I love cajun shrimp ANYTHING! but unlike normal people, I don’t prefer cheese in my dips.. yeah I’m weird like that! but do you see any other ingredient I could use instead?

  7. Thanks for sharing your new recipe! This looks delicious and I love that it is shrimpy favour! Yummy 😀

    • Same as my older daughter, Elizabeth, whenever we are having tea and cheese party, I have to make something special for her.
