basil and baby shrimp dip

posted in: Appetizers  |  Time:    |    Yield: 3 cups

Pop the cork, shrimp season is here! We are definitely spoiled by the freshness of seafood on the West coast, but the beauty of modern day means that no matter where you are in the country, the fish is always remarkably good. This dip is one of my favourite go-tos when I’m looking to have something easy and delicious on hand for when friends pop in over a holiday weekend. It whips up in seconds and can stay in the fridge overnight if need be: just be sure to give it a good stir before serving.
