Recipe Description


1 20 oz package SeaPak® Family Size Butterfly Shrimp

2 tbsp butter

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 jalapeño pepper, thinly sliced

2 tbsp flour

2 cups milk

1 can diced tomatoes with green chiles

1 pinch cumin

3 1/2 cups shredded Mexican-style blend cheese

1/2 cup chopped cilantro


Bake butterfly shrimp according to package directions and keep warm. In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, add the butter, garlic, and jalapeño. Cook for 1 minute. Stir in flour until completely combined. Whisk in the milk and continue to whisk until the sauce is thick (approximately 5 minutes). Stir in diced tomatoes and cumin. Reduce heat to low and stir in 1 cup of cheese at a time (stirring continually until melted before adding more cheese). Once the final cup of cheese is melted, stir in the cilantro. Serve hot with shrimp for dipping.
