Shrimping season is open again! Which brings to mind all those shrimp boat pictures I used to have lining the stairs of the beach house. I even had some pictures from Alaska, Louisiana and Morro Bay in California. Long gone, I had been collecting them for years! Yep, those inside stairs of the old beach house were washed away with Ike. In honor of shrimp season, let me share a fantastic recipe with you. It’s actually my mother-in-law’s, but she would love for you all to enjoy it too.
Mama’s Shrimp Dip
3 lbs shelled shrimp, cooked in a bit of crab boil, cut into bite-size pieces
1 jar freeze dried chives (Kroger in the produce dept.)
1 jar freeze dried parsley (also at Kroger)
1/2 jar horseradish mustard
1 qt mayonnaise
juice of 1 lemon
1 Tablespoon onion salt
Mix all together, refrigerate, best if eaten the next day. By the way, this will serve a large group!
GO’s Sand Bucket is only one beach bum’s journal of life at the beach, probably something each of you can relate to. Please feel free to email me with your thoughts, visions and/or feelings of just exactly what the beach means to you.
