Fresh shrimp are preferred for this recipe. Whatever shrimp you use, be sure to rinse in cold water first. This recipe is easy and elegant.
2/3 cup of shrimp
1/3 cup cream cheese, room temperature
~ ¼ teaspoon white pepper
1 – 2 teaspoon chives or scallions (green onions), finely chopped
~ ½ teaspoon salt
Endive or crackers of choice
Chop the shrimp into medium pieces. Add the softened cream cheese and mix well. Mix in the chives or green onions. Add salt and pepper to taste. Marinate in the refrigerator.
Place a heaping teaspoon on a pieces of endive. If you find endive bitter, use crackers that are subtle in taste and won’t over power the shrimp.
