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
