Whether you are looking for an appetizer, snack or light dinner, these Shrimp Croquettes with Lemon Pepper Dip will be perfect.

The filling is so creamy and crammed with tiny pieces of Shrimp it can really be served with or without the Lemon Pepper Dip.

It might look like a lot of work, but if you make the dough the night before (which only takes about 10 minutes) most of the work will be done already.

The dough does however need at least 3 hours of chilling time in the refrigerator, therefore I highly recommend you make it the night before, especially if you have a full-time job.

Prepare the dip whilst the Shrimp Croquettes are frying – place in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.

These Croquettes were just as delicious cold as they were when served hot. Perfect to take on a picnic !

Looks so good, Linda! I wouldn't be able to skip the lemon pepper dip. I think it would be my favorite part! (I love condiments, sauces, etc). Your croquettes are one of the top-viewed links this week at See Ya in the Gumbo and will be featured tonight. Thank you for coming by each week and sharing your wonderful recipes!
