This one-step paté is completely made in a food processor. The only chopping involved is 1/2 cup of green onions (scallions).
Spread this on crackers or bread, raw vegetable slices, or spoon it on top of a salad to make an easy and light entrée.
This can be made up to two days ahead, making it ideal for a party or holiday meal. Store in the refrigerator.
Yield: Makes 4 cups
- 16 ounces cream cheese
- 1/2 cup top-quality mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup chopped green onions
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
- 1 pound small baby shrimp (sometimes called "bay shrimp)
- Paprika for garnish
Combine first 5 ingredients in a food processor, and blend until smooth. Taste for seasoning and add more worcertershire sauce and/or Old Bay Seasoning if desired.
Add the shrimp to the mixture in the food processor and pulse a few times, just until blended. Don't over-mix, as you want the paté to be light, and have some texture.
Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with paprika to add a bit of color.Similar Recipes
