Baked Spinach and Artichoke Shrimp Dip

Happy Sunday, seafoodies!

Sunday afternoons in January are perfect to build a fire, hunker down to watch a football game and enjoy a restaurant-inspired seafood dip! Today we’re sharing our oh-so-cheesy Baked Spinach & Artichoke Shrimp Dip. By adding shrimp, this impossible-to-resist party favorite is elevated with a protein boost. We say that’s a touchdown!

Not only does shrimp steal the show in this dip, but every time you add shrimp to a dish you boost the nutrients and health benefits. Not only do the essential fatty acids in shrimp support heart and brain health, but shrimp delivers a whopping 20 grams of protein in a 3-oz. serving. Shrimp may be small in size, but there’s nothing little about the number of nutrients they contain, such as: zinc, magnesium, calcium, potassium, iron and more. From providing great flavor to packing a punch of nutrition, you won’t go wrong by whipping together this spinach and artichoke shrimp dip.

We’ll be keeping this one handy throughout all of our 2020 get-togethers. How about you? Not only is this dish full of flavor, it’s easy to prep ahead of time. Score a bag of shrimp at the store and make it, bake it and take it to every celebration! Whether you are headed to a dinner party or to a tailgate, everyone will be asking for “your” shrimp dip recipe.

Pro tip: Mix things up! Along with serving traditional bread and crackers with this dip, bring along a spread of fresh veggies! This will add extra crunch, color and (best of all) nutrition to your party dish.
