Favorite Restaurant Appetizer Recipe

This restaurant Shrimp Dip Recipe is a favorite of mine, coming close to my hot crab artichoke dip.

This restaurant recipe is very flexible in its use. The restaurant usually serves it with very good artisan bread or sliced French bread.

It can be used as a dip for fresh vegetables as well.
