Shrimp Scampi Dip
So Sunday's the big day. Either for football watching, eating, laughing at commercials, hanging out with friends and family, or all of the above. And even if the Super Bowl is not your thing, you should still make this dip. I first tried this for Christmas Eve dinner (unconventional, I know) and we loved it so much that I made it for a family gathering for New Year's Eve. The dish was licked clean. Tender shrimp swimming in a garlicky cheese sauce, scooped up on toasted bread - there is so much to love here.
This is perfect noshing food. Or dinner food (we did eat a green salad, too!). It's just perfect.

Shrimp Scampi Dip
2 Tbsp. butter
12 ounces medium cooked shrimp
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes, or more, to taste
1/4 cup white wine
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sour cream
3 Tbsp. mayonnaise
2 tsp. parsley flakes
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook and stir for 30 seconds, then stir in wine and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a simmer; remove from heat and stir in shrimp, cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, parsley, 1/4 cup mozzarella and Parmesan.
Spread mixture into a greased 9" baking dish; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella. Bake at 350 until bubbly and golden, about 10-12 minutes. Serve immediately with baguette slices, crackers or crudite.
