I love products that offer me flexibility, however, many pre-packaged convenience food products have a trade off – added preservatives, chemicals and loads of sodium.

However, I’ve found another product line that’s a keeper and has become a staple in my kitchen – To Market To Market Gourmet Spice Seasoning Mixes. I use them to make an array of dips, spreads, sauces, and much more.

These all-natural gems will sit ready and waiting in your pantry until you are ready for your next creative moment. Quite economical, most seasoning packets make 3 recipes per package. Today, I’m pretty excited about their “Shrimply Delicious” seasoning blend, which I’ve used in various ways for the past 3 events I held in my home.

Here are some creative ways to use this delicious seasoning mix:

Shrimply Delicious Dip (standard recipe)

8 oz. Baby Shrimp

or

Shrimply Delicious Dip (My lighter version)
2/3 cup light sour cream
2/3 cup olive oil mayonaise
2/3 cup fat free greek yogurt
3 Tbs. Shrimply Delicious seasoning
1 cup chopped cooked shrimped
1/2 tsp sea salt (or to your personal taste)

Squeeze excess moisture from the shrimp by placing between a couple of paper towels and squeezing firmly. Mix all the ingredients together. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Serve within 48 hours with crackers, baggette, or fresh cut vegetables.

Another fantastic recipe, from To Market To Market’s kitchen is their Hot Shrimply Delicious – rich, warm and bubbly!

Transfer dip to an oven-proof baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until warm and bubbly. Serve immediately with crackers. Low fat products may be substituted.

Here is one of my personal creations with this awesome seasoning mix:

30 Cremini or baby bella mushroom caps
2 Tbs. chopped fresh parsley – optional garnish

Squeeze excess water from shrimp between two paper towels. Sauté proscuitto for about 6-7 mins or until lightly crisp. Drain and set aside to cool for a few minutes.

Brush clean mushrooms with a light cloth or paper towel. Remove steps and place the mushroom caps on a baking sheet . Chop about a dozen of the stems for the dip.

Mix together the chopped mushroom stems, prosciutto, the shrimp, mayo, parmesan cheese, fontina cheese, seasoning mix and salt. Mix together and refrigerate for 2 hours.
