The shrimp has a nice zing to it, which is wonderfully complemented by the lemony dip. This is a nice alternative to regular shrimp with cocktail sauce.

Yummy! We really liked this. My little girl loves shrimp and she really liked it- escpecially the dip part. I added minced garlic to the dip and granulated garlic to the shrimp when I fried them. I left out the capers because we don't care for them. I'm always looking for new ways to make shrimp and fish and I've found several recipes from you that we really like. In fact, I'm making your Salmon With Dijon Dill Shallot Sauce just for me again tonight. Thanks, JackieOhNo! Made for Pick a Chef Spring 2009.
This wasn't as good as I had thought it would be, but not bad either. I really liked the dip part of it, but I guess the old bay seasoning just didn't do it for me and I didn't like them mixed together. Definitely simple to make though. There is a lot more dip than we needed for that amount of shrimp, but maybe our shrimp were a bit smaller.
