This Buffalo Shrimp Dip Recipe is everything a shrimp lover could ask for in a dip. Shrimp chunks in a cheesy and creamy buffalo mixture, baked and served hot. This shrimp dip is perfect for parties, potlucks or family get-togethers.
Though Buffalo Chicken Dip is extremely popular for parties, this Buffalo Shrimp Dip is going to give Chicken Dip a run for its money. 🙂 The dip was inspired by the popular Chicken Dip Recipe and it’s a hit every time I make it to a party or get together. You still have the kick from Frank’s Hot Sauce but it’s not overpowering. The added Blue cheese and yogurt balance the remaining flavors and bring out the shrimp in the dip.
Can I add crab to the dip?
If you want this dip more of a seafood dip instead of a shrimp dip, add crab meat! It will work perfectly in this recipe. Instead of 1 1/2 pounds shrimp, do 1 pound shrimp and 1/2 pound crab meat.
