    I wish I had something to say beyond that that's horrible news, and that this pandemic absolutely sucks. Enthusiastic and gregarious personality both on display in the video below. All the best to his family.

    Just curious, what is your recipe for making fish dip. I would love to emulate!


    Esteemed forum, please forgive my replying to 1.) a six year old post, 2.) a question that was asked of someone else, and is not about shrimp dip, but this is so good I have to share it.
    Back in May, I came across this recipe for Fast Shrimp Spread from (Hints from) Heloise:

    Ingredients (with my substitution that makes it relevant to Calumet Fisheries):
    „ 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
    „ 1/2 cup mayonnaise
    „ 4 ounces tiny cocktail shrimp, drained and rinsed (I substitued 1/4 lb. of Calumet Fisheries smoked shrimp, shelled, cleaned, and chopped into approx.1/4" pieces)
    „ 2 tablespoons seafood cocktail sauce (NOT Calumet Fisheries; I prefer Teibel's)
    „ 1/2 cup finely chopped onion (yellow, white, or red)
    „ 1/8 teaspoon garlic salt

    Thoroughly mix the cream cheese and mayonnaise until well blended.
    Mash or chop the shrimp and add to the mixture; stir in remaining ingredients. Refrigerate until needed. It’s best served at room temperature with crackers and veggies as a dip or spread on bread as a sandwich. Do not let it sit out for more than one
    hour. This shrimp spread is a nice alternative to the usual dips found at parties
    and will never fail to please your guests and family. — Heloise

    The substitution of the smoked shrimp elevated this to another level. Hope you enjoy it.

    Weird Calumet Fisheries visit over the weekend. Most of the smoked shrimp were the nuggets of perfection we've all come to expect over the years, but a couple were a bit dry, which I don't think I've experienced there before. Smoked salmon was bad; mushy and had minimal smoke flavor. Decades of consistency obviously far more important. I won't hesitate to return.

    Apparently these signs have been up for a few months. I had no idea they made their own mild sauce. I wonder what the missing ingredient could possibly be.
