The Peterson Shrimp Brick

I don't know who came up with this delightful recipe, but I know that it's not a family party unless there's a shrimp brick.

I haven't figured out a way to make the shrimp brick look really appetizing. I think my cousin-in-law, Laurie, has the right idea, though. Putting the sauce first and then, the shrimp makes it look better, but I always forget to do that (see picture).

Really, not a looker, but delightfully (did I just use a form of "delightful" twice?) easy and delicious. And de-lovely...
Peterson Shrimp Brick
1 block of cream cheese
1 can of tiny shrimp deveining them is a pain, but I think well worth it
1 bottle of cocktail sauce
Put cream cheese on serving plate. Press tiny shrimp into cream cheese block (or you can put them on after). And, pour about 1/2 the bottle of cocktail sauce over it. Serve with crackers.

Hey thanks for the shout out! But it definitely looks appetizing no matter what way you put it together. I also always use the round bottle of "Homemade Chili Sauce" it can be found at Bashas (usually).
