1 pound of uncooked, peeled and deveined small shrimp
1 shallot, finely chopped (about 1/4 cup)
3/4 cup of low-fat sour cream
1 tablespoon of unsalted butter
3 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)
1 tablespoon of finely grated lemon zest
3/4 cup of reduced-fat mayonnaise
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
2 scallions (thinly sliced)
1 tablespoon of chopped fresh parsley
First, melt the butter into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Wait until the butter foams, and then add the shrimp. Garlic, and shallots to the skillet. Season it with the salt and pepper and sauté until the shrimp are just opaque and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. As soon as that happens, transfer it all to a plate and let it cool. Once the shrimp is cooled down, transfer it again to a food processor. Now pulse the lemon zest and scallions until they are chopped but still chunky.
Now grab a large bowl and mix together the sour cream and mayonnaise. Once it is all mixed, add in the hot sauce, lemon juice, and parsley. Now stir in the shrimp mixture. Season it with additional salt and pepper. Once that is all done, cover the bowl and chill for at least 1 hour. When that hour is up, go ahead and taste the dip yourself and adjust the seasoning. When that final touch is complete, get some crudités, chips, crackers, or anything else you’d like to dip into this bowl of wild taste!
