  • Portion size 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 slices bacon
  • 3 green onions sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup 2% plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 2 lbs frozen cooked large shrimp thawed

Method

In large skillet over medium-high heat, cook bacon, turning often, just until crisp, about 5 minutes.

Drain all but 1 tsp fat from pan; cook green onions and garlic, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and softened, about 1 minute. Transfer to plate; let cool. Chop bacon; set aside 1 tbsp for garnish.

Meanwhile, in bowl, stir together yogurt, mayonnaise, basil, parsley, salt and pepper. Add green onion mixture and remaining bacon; stir. Garnish with reserved bacon.

Arrange shrimp on platter; serve with dip.
