This Shrimp Spinach Artichoke Dip was actually made and photographed last summer. Our daughter loved it – this kid’s palate is unbelievable, y’all – and the entire bowl of dip was consumed before July 4th festivities began.

However, just because we made this during the summertime doesn’t mean it’s not good for winter, too.

Creamy, gooey and delicious, it’s the perfect year-round appetizer. It cooks on the stovetop, so it’s perfect indoors or outdoors. (You know, in case you’ve got some tailgating to do and want to heat it up on your grill!)

It’s a fun spin on a well-loved appetizer… assuming you’re into shrimp.
