This is the one new recipe I added to our 
Christmas Eve Buffet which was given
"two thumbs up" by everyone.
It is not the most beautiful photo 
however it is an amazing recipe and I know
you will love it for your New Year's gathering!
This dip can also be made in one baking skillet
and it is chocked full of shrimp, crab and veggies!

1/2 pound of frozen shrimp, defrosted
4 ounces of lump crab meat
2 T. butter
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup green pepper, finely chopped
1/3 cup celery, diced
1 fresh Jalapeno, minced
1/2 cup fresh chopped spinach
3 cloves garlic, mined
1 t. Old Bay seasoning
4 ounces of cream cheese
2 cups freshly grated Gouda cheese
1/2 cup Gruyere cheese
1 t. red pepper flakes
chopped fresh parsley
Paprika....about 1 t. 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Defrost shrimp and set aside.
Chop all vegetables.
Heat a skillet on stove top with butter.
Saute the onion, pepper, celery and jalapeno until tender.
Next add spinach, garlic and Old Bay.
Stir well.
Next add shrimp and crab.
Cook 3 minutes until shrimp turn pink.
Remove from heat.
Stir in cream cheese, Gouda and Gruyere.
Sprinkle with Paprika and place
skillet in oven.
Bake about 15-20 minutes until cheese has melted.
Serve with a hot, crusty baguette.
