Baked Seafood Dip (via abeautifulmess.com) So, of course, I’m always looking for new dips, appetizers and party snacks that I enjoy and can throw together for future parties of my own. But the thing about serving food is you really need to “test” out the recipes first, possibly multiple times. It’s hard work, but someone’s got to do it (she said with a mouth full of dip and celery).

Baked Seafood Dip (via abeautifulmess.com) Baked Seafood Dip, serves 6-8 as an appetizer.

8 oz. softened cream cheese
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste*
3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
4 oz. canned tiny shrimp, drained
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4-1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
1/2 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

*Don’t be a afraid of the anchovy paste! It’s actually really good as an accompaniment to a cheese plate or to make your own Caesar dressing (among other things).

Baked Seafood Dip (via abeautifulmess.com) In a mixing bowl combine the cream cheese, mayo, anchovy paste, garlic, seasoning and parsley until well combined. Then stir in the tiny shrimp and 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese. The anchovy paste and Parmesan cheese are already quite salty so you really don’t need to add much, if any, additional salt.

Scoop into a small baking dish or oven safe bowl. Top with the remaining Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350°F for 30-35 minutes until the cheese begins to look golden brown on the edges. Serve hot with crackers and fresh veggies.

Make easy crackers from store bought pie crustYou might recognize those littlelobster crackers if you remember when I shared a lobster mac and cheese recipe a couple years ago. I used my lobster cookie cutter to cut out store bought pie crust that I topped with a little Old Bay seasoning and baked until crispy. Ta da! Homemade lobster crackers to go with the seafood dip. :)
