Northern shrimp croutons with cream cheese & lime
This is a recipe that really pleases me because I’m a true fan of Northern Shrimps. Their texture and finesse are to die for, and I think they’re best when served as simply as possible. If I could serve these croutons every time I was entertaining I would, but I guess one has to vary a bit.
The “dip-lover” inside is quite content with the cream cheese mix.
