Layered Seafood Dip Recipe

We love seafood here at our home and eat some type of seafood at least once a week. Most of the time we enjoy it as our main dish but every once in awhile we will enjoy it as an appetizer like in this very easy-to-make recipe for a Layered Seafood Dip which utilizes canned shrimp and crab meat. If you want to use fresh seafood, you'll need to steam your seafood properly, let it cool and refrigerate it for 1-2 hours before making this recipe.

Once the recipe has been prepared, you'll need to refrigerate your shrimp and crab meat dip for at least 4 hours before serving. With that said, we think it tastes better refrigerating it overnight to allow all of the flavors to infuse. You'll want to serve it with Tostitos, Taco Chips, tortilla chips or with your favorite artisan crackers or bread.

Shrimp and Crab Meat Dip Recipe

1 (8 ounce) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 (16 ounce) container of sour cream
2 cans of tiny shrimp
1 can white crab meat
1 envelope Ranch dressing mix
1 bottle of cocktail sauce

Mix cream cheese and sour cream together in a large bowl. Add in the Ranch dressing mix, stir until blended. Place bowl in freezer for 10 minutes. Remove from freezer and spread mixture into a serving dish (we use a rectangular glass baking dish). Pour cocktail sauce evenly over mixture. Drain crabmeat and shrimp, mix them together in a small bowl. Spread the seafood mixture over the cocktail sauce. Cover your container and refrigerate for several hours before serving. It's delicious!

I think that this is a delicious recipe. I love cream cheese combinations and I love seafood combinations. Layering these items made a wonderful dip.
