Shrimp Dip – Horns O’Plenty – Sardine Strips

10 large cooked or canned shrimp
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. grated onion
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Dash pepper
1/4 tsp. salt

Peel shrimp, if necessary, and remove black veins. Mash to a purée in a food mill or blender. Add next 6 ingredients and enough cream to make mixture spread easily. Serve as a dip with crackers or potato chips or in Horns O’Plenty, below. Makes about 1 cup.

Prepare a recipe for Standard Pastry (see Index D). Cut heavy-duty aluminum foil into 4-inch squares; roll into horn shapes. Roll out the pastry 1/8 inch thick; cut into 3-inch squares. Roll each square around a foil horn. Pinch or lightly press loose edges of dough to seal; place, sealed edges down, on a cooky sheet. Bake in a hot oven, 425°, 10 to 12 minutes or until brown. Cool; carefully remove the foil. Just before serving, fill the pastry horns with Shrimp Dip. Makes 12 to 15 horns.


Sprinkle small sardines with a little lemon juice; let stand 10 minutes. Brush strips of toast with melted butter or margarine. Place 1 or 2 sardines on each strip. Top with little pieces of partially friend bacon. Place in broiler 4 inches from heat, 5 minutes, or until bacon is crisp and sardines are hot. Serve at once.
