Fiesta Shrimp Dip

Fiesta Shrimp Dip - the perfect dip for easy entertaining

If you’ve been following along here for a while, you might be familiar with our Fiesta Shrimp Dip recipe. It’s definitely a fan favourite and the number one request whenever I’m asked to bring a dish to any sort of function. We’ve shared the recipe a few times, but given everything going on this year, I thought it might be fun to reimagine it in a more Covid friendly way. Not only do the layers look super pretty in the individual glasses, but now you don’t have to share! 


Fiesta Shrimp Dip


  • 12-16 shrimp cleaned and deveined
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 Jar Taste of the Okanagan Fiesta Pear Salsa
  • 150 g shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 125 g Cream Cheese softened
  • 125 g Sour Cream

  • Melt butter & garlic in a pan and sauté shrimp until cooked through.
  • While shrimp are cooking mix softened cream cheese with sour cream and seasoning mix. Spread evenly on the bottom of your serving dish. This will be your first layer.
  • Next, layer the jar of Fiesta Pear Salsa, on top of the cream cheese layer.
