Spicy Shrimp Salad

Shrimp is another food I eat frequently. This is one of my easily prepared go to foods. I keep it made up in the fridge at all times.

Spicy Shrimp Salad

3 large hard-cooked eggs
1 pound salad shrimp (canned or frozen)
2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons dill relish
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
salt to taste.

Thaw shrimp if frozen. In bowl of food processor pulse eggs and shrimp until coarsely chopped. Add remaining ingredients. Quickly pulse until well mixed. Do not overprocess. Chill.

I serve this wrapped up in a piece of provolone cheese or even in a lettuce leaf. I you prefer to use crackers---DON'T. Why mess up a good low carb dish by adding useless carbs to it??? Enjoy!!

"I you prefer to use crackers---DON'T."

LOL!!! OK! I won't!

Actually, I've not yet found a low carb cracker that is both low carb and tasty, so I haven't had crackers in.....a long time!!

This sounds good!
