We have it! Crafted from simple but quality ingredients, the distinguished Salt Shaker Deli in Lunenburg has a dish created by Chef Martin Ruiz Salvador that will impress; both from their stunning view of Lunenburg Harbour and in the comfort of your own home. Either way, give this creative shrimp dish a try and see for yourself why going pink is the ‘IT’ thing.



• 8 oz Cream cheese
• 10 oz NS shrimp
• 1 tsp Tabasco
• 5 gm Paprika
• 4 stalks Green onion
• Ground black pepper



Cook the shrimp and let cool.  Preheat oven to 350˚

In a food processor, pulse together 5 oz shrimp (reserve the remaining 5 oz) and cream cheese.

Tip: If you do not have a food processor, coarsely chop the 5 oz of shrimp. In a mixer beat cream cheese to soften and then mix shrimp and cream cheese together. 

Transfer shrimp and cream cheese mixture to a bowl.

Once the mixture is in the bowl, chop green onion and add to the mixture. Mix in remaining 5 oz of whole shrimp. Mix in tabasco, paprika and black pepper to taste.

Spoon mixture into a baking dish, bake for 25-30 minutes at 350˚ or until golden brown and heated through.

Serve with toasted bread and Selkie Rosé.
