    Recipe Introduction

    A delicious hot dip....

    List of Ingredients

    2 cups half-and-half
    1 tablespoon clam juice
    2 teaspoons dry white wine
    3 tablespoons butter
    1 shallot -- finely chopped
    2 tablespoons flour
    4 cups rough chopped spinach
    1 cup canned artichoke hearts -- chopped
    8 large shrimp -- peeled, cleaned, chopped
    1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (more to taste)
    1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese -- optional


    In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine half-and-half, clam juice and white wine. In a separate saucepan, melt butter. Add shallots and sauté until translucent. Add flour to butter mixture, stirring until flour is absorbed. Cook, stirring constantly, 2-3 minutes. Add heated half-and-half mixture all at once to the shallot mix, stirring constantly with a wire whip to remove any lumps. Add spinach, artichokes, shrimp, cayenne and black pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, so the mixture does not scorch. Remove mixture from heat, and stir in cheese, if desired. Pour dip into bowl and serve hot.
