Hot Shrimp Dip

November 24, 2014

My mom made this dip for our families to enjoy before our wedding. It was a big hit with everyone during our family gathering. This dip is a nice alternative to shrimp cocktail or other hot dips you might serve at your next big event. Enjoy!

You will need:

  • 1/4 c unsalted butter (or olive oil)
  • 2/3 c red pepper, chopped
