Hot Shrimp Dip

When entertaining in summer, seafood is the thing - and the thing is Shrimp Dip here in New England!

Here's a wonderful old favorite recipe for New England Shrimp dip - serve with your favorite crackers, or veggies or in a bread bowl.

You may also substitute clams or chopped clams for the shrimp.
