This dip is *seriously*  good! It's warm, gooey, comforting, and VERY delicious! It has a cream cheese and shrimp base, but I've added a little tomato and horseradish, so you get hints of cocktail sauce as you enjoy the dip. It's super easy to make and a real crowd-pleaser! 

How to Make a Low Carb Hot Shrimp Dip

Melt some butter in a large skillet, then add some chopped raw shrimp and garlic. Cook until the shrimp are almost done.

Add some cream cheese, and continue to cook over a low heat until it starts to melt. Then add some mayonnaise, shredded Parmesan, sour cream, low carb ketchup, creamed horseradish, salt and pepper, and stir to combine. For the ketchup I recommend G Hughes Ketchup which you can buy from Netrition or Amazon – it's sugar free, has great flavor, and only 1g net carb per tablespoon.

When the cheese has melted, transfer everything to a baking dish. LINK Bake (uncovered) in a preheated oven for 15-18 minutes until it starts to brown on top. You can even finish it under the broiler if you prefer. Serve warm.

I served this dip with my favorite low carb Dixie USA Corn Chips (which you can buy from Netrition), but you could also serve cucumber sticks, jicama sticks, celery, or make your own homemade tortilla chips!

Oh and by the way? That shrimp on the side of the dish? It's fake! Originally I added it so that it would be clear from my photos when you saw them on social media that the dish contained shrimp. But actually, it can be a useful indication to guests about what is in the dip!
