  1. Mash shrimp with fork. Add garlic, lemon juice and hot sauce and blend well.
  2. Add cream cheese and cocktail sauce and blend.
  3. Carefully add capers so assure they remain whole.
  4. Chill overnight in covered container.
  5. Serve with crackers – this is a spread, not dip and chips won't "work."

The flavor is just not the same if fresh shrimp are used – maybe if you could get those very tiny shrimp it may be?
