As much as I love dunking fresh shrimp into a low carb cocktail sauce – I like to switch it up every now and then and try something different! This dip combines crispy bacon, fresh herbs all mixed together in a creamy sauce. And it isn’t the first time that I’ve combined shrimp and bacon, either! My Buttery Shrimp with Bacon recipe is SO delicious!
Add the herbs, green onion and garlic paste to a mini food processor (I use the attachment on my stick blender) and process until smooth. I’ve used basil and flat-leaf parsley on this occasion, but some chives or oregano might work well, too!
Scrape the herby goodness into a large bowl and add plain Greek yogurt, mayonnaise and cooked chopped bacon. Stir well, test for seasoning and add salt and pepper if necessary.
Transfer to a serving bowl and keep covered in the fridge until required.
