Shrimp Stack

This is the appetizer that we have at just about every family function.  It is a recipe from my cookbook that Darlene made for me.  If I had a dollar for every time I've made this recipe, I'd be rich.
  • 1 lb. of small boiled shrimp
  • 2 (8 oz.) cream cheese
  • ½ C. green onions, finely chopped
  • ¼ t. grated lemon peel
  • 2 T. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 T. lemon juice
  • 1 t. Crystal hot sauce
  • 1 bottle of Cocktail sauce
  • Crackers
  1. Let cream cheese soften, before starting to make this appetizer.
  2. Combine the softened cream cheese with all the following ingredients (except the Cocktail sauce)
  3. Spread the cream cheese mixture into a serving dish
  4. Refrigerate until ready to serve
  5. When it’s time to serve, pour the Cocktail sauce over the cream cheese mixture
  6. Place the boiled shrimp on top of the Cocktail sauce and serve
Tips and Tricks:
  • I use 1/3 less fat cream cheese.
  • I serve this dip with Butter Thins from Pepperidge Farms.


  1. This looks very interesting... Do you have a favorite cocktail sauce that you use?

  2. I use the Heinz Zesty Cocktail Sauce.
