Shrimp with Sesame Almond Satay Dip

Put away the cocktail sauce and try something new! This savory nutty dip is delicious with hot or cold shrimp.


Combine all the ingredients for the dip in a mini food processor and puree until smooth. Dip will thicken the longer it sits, so mix in a bit of water to thin it out if needed.

If desired, toast some sesame seeds for garnish in a dry skillet over medium heat, shaking pan until golden.ShrimpSesameAlmondSatay2

Fry, steam, or grill the shrimp until they are pink and opaque, about 2-3 minutes. You can serve them warm or cold with the dip. ShrimpSesameAlmondSatay3
