Shrimp Artichoke Dip

Macaroni Grill Copycat Recipe

Serves 2

4 cups half and half
2 tablespoons clam juice
4 teaspoons dry white wine
6 tablespoons butter
2 shallots, finely chopped
4 tablespoons flour
8 cups spinach, rough chopped
2 cups artichoke heart (canned artichoke heart chopped)
16 shrimp (peeled cleaned chopped)
1/4  teaspoon cayenne pepper, taste
1/4  teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
1 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 saute 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.
