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.
This looks so good and would make a great appetizer for a night hanging in with friends.
My girl friends love it and nothing was left, Alisa!
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.
OMG, Talamay, Habanero would give such a special spicy flavor. Next time, I will add it.
Looks and sounds quite delicious. Must try it the next time I get shrimps.
You can also try with chicken, Bindu!
OMG, this looks seriously so darn good. I’ll definitely be trying this!
Try and let me know, Danielle!
These looks so yummy!
Yum yum yum. If you were my mom I’d never want to leave the house. 🙂
My daughter said, she will come every day for dinner, we will see!
This dish looks so good! I like that it is easy to make and most importantly has lots of shrimps in it, I love shrimps ?
Same here, Christiana!
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!
You can replace the shrimp with chicken, Stephanie, it is equally delicious.
This looks so good and simple to make. I love finding new dishes to make with shrimp.
I hope you enjoy it, Nikki!
This sounds perfect for serving guests. I would enjoy it for sure. How was the book?
My guests enjoyed it, Angela.
Cheesy cajun shrimp dip sounds delicious, and a bit different too. I’ll try to make this for the hubby!
Hope he likes it, Lisa.
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 🙂
Thanks for sharing, Anagha!
This looks so good. Perfect savory summer food!
I agree, Junell!
My husband is a big fan of shrimp, I think this would go over well in our home.
Same for me, Luna!
Shrimps are my all time fave! But I have never tried them with cheese. Will try your recipe! 🙂
Same for me, Snehal!
I am not a fan of shrimps but with cheese I would love to eat it all. I would love to try this mouth-watering dish.
If you like chicken, you could try it with that, Pooja!
I’m just thinking about how lucky the people around you 🙂 Thanks for sharing with us. Happy blogging!!!
Thank you so much!
I don’t eat shrimp, but I would love to try this recipe with a different food.
Go for chicken if you can eat it, Crystal!
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
Mine too, Helen!
This looks so good! I wish I could just eat it off the screen!
Come over, and I will make some for you, Blake!
Yum, this looks like such a delicious app for a party! I love the combo of flavors here, can’t wait to try it!!
I can tell you, Angela, my guests enjoyed it.
This looks really tasty. I have to see if we have Cajun seasoning in Japan. Is there any other seasoning can replace it?
You can skip the Cajun or use any spicy seasoning of your choice, Aisasami, the possibilities are endless.
This look so cheesy and delicious. What a great appetiser. This look like an easy recipe to make.
It’s easy, Anshika!
Such a creative shrimp recipe! I’m not a huge fan of seafood, but I’m sure hubby will love this.
If you can, make it for your hubby, Liz!
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!
Dips always make any gathering more fun.
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?
I am a cheese lover, Nati, and can have it every day, I would go for some tomatoes sauce with a little cream.
This is such a great dish for a party! Anything with cheese is usually a hit.
I second that, Christa!
This recipe looks both simple and delicious. I may give it a go next family gathering.
You summarized it well, John, simple and delicious.
Oh boy does that sound good definitely going to have to try this
Yummy, Looks nice.
Been looking for more shrimp recipes. I’ll have to give this recipe a try because it sounds good
It was good and simple to make, Dinka!
What a great recipe! I feel like my husband would love this! Def going to try it
I hope he will enjoy it, Neely!

Shrimp makes everything better to me, Blair!

I’m going to send this to my boyfriend and see if he can make it. This looks amazing.
That is awesome, Chantelle!
This looks delicious! Definitely going to try this soon!
I am going to make it again, this weekend, Kendall!
This looks delicious and well-seasoned too. I like cheese but my system doesn’t digest it well.
Same as my older daughter, Elizabeth, whenever we are having tea and cheese party, I have to make something special for her.
I love dips especially when eating chips. This looks delicious.
The football season is coming and it’s the perfect time to enjoy some delicious dips, Ramil!
Stop making me so hungry or at least send me some?
Yours is on its way!
That sounds delicious! I must definitely try! Thanks for sharing!
This sounds amazing.
