Good grief, this is good! Rich rich rich. I wanted to follow it to a tee, but I didn't have white pepper on hand, so I used a few grinds of black pepper and added a couple of dashes of Worcestershire and Crystal hot sauce to give the recipe that heat level. Also used fresh shrimp. This dip is insanely good. Next time I make it, I'm going to add about a splash (or a Tblsp) of cooking Sherry -- I think the Sherry will take the crab flavor over the top. Also, I'm thinking this dip (b/c it's pretty liquidy) would be excellent served over steak and asparagus, like an "Oscar" recipe. Please don't scrimp on the Parmesan -- go ahead and purchase the good stuff and grate it by hand. Makes all the difference. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Delicious! 4 stars because of the oiliness. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this dip for Christmas Eve and it was so good! I received so many wonderful compliments on this dip, it was a big hit! Very easy to make. The only thing I did different was I added a little shredded parm cheese to the top of the dip before I baked it in the oven! And I did add some onion powder as well. I put out french bread and town house crackers with the dip. Excellent! There was even a little left over, and it warmed up great the next day! Dip was not "fishy" tasting at all. Had great flavor! My husband requested the dip for New Years Eve! This recipe is a keeper...thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I have no trouble finding Campbell's Cream of Shrimp Soup in any grocery store of any size an use it often. But, I am getting ready to make this recipe for a Christmas party and was wondering about the grated Parm. 1/2 LB grated sounds like an awful lot of cheese. I love cheese and am sure I'll like this dip, but this just looked like a LOT of Parm to me. At first I thought it meant 1/2 cup. So much cheese may be why some posters speak of it the dip being very greasy. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is a great recipe! The first time I make a new recipe I invite a couple of friends over to find out what they think about it. Everyone loved it and I used it to put in a cookbook I'm writing. I have learned over the years to read the reviews and Paula certainly has a good record for 4 or 5 stars. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was a big hit at the party, but I really think it needed a little "something"' else to spice it up, but not overwhelm the seafood. Will do this again, but will add some kind of pepper or spice to it - maybe a little crushed red pepper? item not reviewed by moderator and published
this dip was excellent! Took it to the family christmas party and it was a hit. everyone wanted the recipe. Very easy to make and easy on the wallet. I used red pepper instaed of green and i cut up fresh shrimp" had leftover steam shrimp" way to go paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sorry Paula, I really wanted to like this dip but it was bland and very greasy. I did use canned crab and shrimp and maybe that was the problem. I have never seen cream of shrimp soup at the stores so I used some cream of celery soup instead. I love crab and shrimp and imagine that using fresh seafood would make a huge difference. I would also add some more flavors like garlic, fresh parsley, and some Old Bay. I was also thinking about using half the mayo called for and replacing it with cream cheese to cut the greasiness. The dip does have potential to be really tasty. On a side note: I am so irritated that Food Network is allowing people to advertise their sketchy merchandise websites in the recipe reviews! Please stop allowing them to be posted! item not reviewed by moderator and published
YES -OMG saved this recipe over a year ago and finally made it last night -- easy and really good. My guests even ate it cold - i keep telling them to pop it in the microwave but they said it was good jus the way it was. NExt time I will not use Town house crakcers - they were 2 buttery and I will keep dip in a small crockpot to keep it atleast warm. Definitely will make his again.

This looks really good and I want to try to make it. Can someone tell me if you are suppose to cook the shrimp before you put it in the dip? The recipe does not say. I know it has to cook for 30 minutes after you combine everything but i"m not sure if the shrimp have to be cooked first. Can someone help? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for a spring party last year & everyone liked it. I made it for a work party for Xmas and everyone loved it but the person allergic to crab. I doubled the shrimp and 86'd the crab & it's just as awesome. For Xmas, I used a mix of green & red bells. Now I've got a friend who says she'll only come to my sring party this year if I make a double batch. So be it!! ENJOY EVERYONE!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe did not go to waste though I had leftovers from the party. There were to many items at the party. We finished this up during the week. I did only half the mayo and added 4 oz cream cheese. Make sure you use good crab and good shrimp. item not reviewed by moderator and published

After reading all of the comments about the hard to find cream of shrimp soup I set out far and wide to find it. I live in Maryland and actually found it at the Giant up the street from my house.

I made this on Christmas Day for my family. I used fresh crab meat and a full pound of shrimp. I had to substitute Cream of Celery soup because I could not find the Cream of Shrimp soup either. I served it with french bread and ritz crackers. The dip was devoured and was a big hit, even once it got cold. We will be making this for all special occasions now! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I LOVE Paula! When I saw this dip I instantly thought of my mother! She loves shrimp! So I made this for her today. She LOVED it. NOTE: To whoever posted LIES on here saying this smells like fish and is stinky. That is a down right LIE. You probably used old or cheap seafood. This is so delicious on ritz crackers. That's how we enjoyed this dip. Thanks again Paula Deen. I have tried MANY MANY of your recipes, and they are always hits in my house. God bless you. item not reviewed by moderator and published

My dad has turned into a food network junkie and brought this awesome dip over. I have been wanting it again ever since. I had a really hard time finding the cream of shrimp soup. I ened up emailing the Campbell's company and asked for stores near my zipcode that carried it. About a week later they wrote me back with 3 stores. I also saw that you can order it on line but not sure if you want a case of it LOL. It's a super rich and tasty dip! A great crowd pleaser! Just made my first batch today. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I watched the episode when Paula made this and it looked great. Later searched for it when I was looking for some way to use up some leftover cooked shrimp I had in the fridge. I read several reviews, looked at what I had available and ended up using the pound of shrimp plus a pound of imitation crab and added 6oz mozzella and 6oz of taco blend to the parmesan. Cream of Shrimp soup is hard to find in small town WI so used Cream of Celery This dip received RAVE reviews at a football party... Thanks Paula!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great appetizer to bring along with sliced baguette bread. The seafood is not overpowering, the cheese and mayo make it very comforting :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't know what to use in place of the cream of shrimp soup, as I can't find it at the supermarket. I know Campbell's used to make it, but I don't think they do anymore.

Made this last Sunday for a party, and it was a hit. I added several types of cheeses and fire roasted red pepper, a jalapeno and a few red pepper flakes and it was just delicious. I served it with thin sliced french bread baked with EVOO and it was the first thing gone at the party. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is awesome. I make it all the time. I always use fresh lump crab (I get it at Sams in seafood market). I never use canned crab or shrimp in this recipe. The only thing I do different is season my shrimp lightly with garlic and little butter in a saute pan for a minute or two and then add to the dip. You can also add other cheeses to it (I use grated parmesan ). I have never had a problem with consistency or fishy smell either. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe last weekend. Used canned crabmeat, one white, one claws. First time I bought canned crabmeat. Chicken of the Sea. Used fresh cooked shrimp. Found the canned shrimp soup, Also based on reviews I added old bay seasoning I barely used any oil to saute the onion and yellow bell pepper. and doubled the seafood ingredients. The dish smelled like cat food and was a looser consistency (looser than I would have liked). it didn't taste so bad. But I will never make it again. Wonder if it was the canned crabmeat. Never again! Sorry Paula. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I saw Paula make this during the 2008 holidays and decided to whip up for a dinner party. It was EXCELLENT! I was pleasantly surprised. Everyone raved about it - this will now be in my arsenal of "go to appetizers" to take for any occasion. I did make one change - used red peppers instead of green. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Besides the fact that this recipe will make everyone leave the party because it makes your entire kitchen smell like fish...it was oily and not good at all. Additionally, I went to three different grocery stores looking for cream of shrimp soup and could not find it. I used cream of chicken instead, which I'm sure 'helped' cut down on the fishiness. This was a One Bite dip...make something else! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I also used shrimp bisque which was cheaper than shrimp soup. I used fresh shrimp and poached in old bay. I think the addition of old bay (as a reviewer suggested) to the dip, in addition to the cheese and the soup made it salty. I also used more crab and shrimp. The dip was a little looser than I expected even though I used less soup and mayonnaise. I would make again with a few changes. item not reviewed by moderator and published

II made this for my 16 year old son's New Year's party. It was gone by the end of the evening, and there were only 8 guests! Even the girls (who usually eat very little in front of boys) were scarfing it down. My grocery was out of cream of shrimp soup, so I subbed shrimp bisque. It added another layer of flavor. You could detect a hint of sherry in the background. I served it with sesame melba toasts. Thanks for another winner, Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I saw Paula cook this on her show and couldn't wait to cook it. Before reading the recipe I didn't even know canned shrimp or crab existed. I used lump crabmeat and fresh cooked shrimp and took reviewers advice and added some garlic. I only added 1/2 of the veggies and after the dip came out of the oven I garnished with fresh lump crab meat and OH MY! The left over dip would be great over fish or use it to make stuffed salmon. item not reviewed by moderator and published

After reading the reviews, I cut the mayo to 1/2 a cup and added an 8 ounce block of cream cheese, along with some old bay seasoning and garlic. We actually stuffed some of this mixture into halved jalapenos, rolled in seasoned breadcrumbs and baked--they were even better than the plain dip. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was looking for a hot dip to serve at my dinner party and came across this scrumptious combination. I couldn't find cream of shrimp soup in my store so opted for cream of asparagus (i've had hot artichoke and asparagus dips before so thought it would work). I followed the rest of the directions to a tee and it was sooooo good. My guests RAVED about it and everyone wanted some to take home (the recipe yields a LOT) Next time I make it I will try to cut down on the mayo and try to make it so that its a little less salty - but otherwise enjoy this dip and serve it with toasted (and halved) sourdough bread slices. YUMMMMM!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I was hesitant about the shrimp, whether I should buy raw or already cooked. So I used small salad shrimp that were already cooked and ready to eat. It was great. I also couldn't find cream of shrimp soup, so I used cream of celery. It all went really well. I also added a dash of garlic pepper like some of the other people said they had done. It makes a lot of dip though, too much for five people. This was the best seafood dip I had ever tasted. Good job Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This dip was great! I made it exactly as Paula had written it, but at the end of the baking time, I turned the oven to broil. Broiling it at the end gave it a gorgeous color and yummy crunch top.
