Doesn't that look yummy? It's a New England style lobster and shrimp dip. I found it on a neat web site called Your Party - Tuned Up. You can see it here.

16 oz. cream cheese, softened
Fresh lobster meat from two lobsters (or about 6 ounces of canned or frozen lobster meat)
2/3 pound cooked shrimp (about a cup chopped)
1 Tablespoon horseradish (real horseradish, not sauce)
3 dashes Tabasco Sauce
3 Tablespoon Milk
2 scallions, sliced
Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
One sleeve Ritz Crackers, crushed
4 Tablespoon Butter, melted
Chop lobster meat and shrimp; put in bowl.  Toss with scallions.
Sprinkle mixture with sea salt and pepper to taste.  Toss again.
In separate bowl, whip the cream cheese until fluffy.
Note:  I whip the cream cheese in my KitchenAid, then add the following ingredients and blend on low.
Add horseradish, tabasco sauce and milk; blend well.
Add shrimp and lobster mixture to the cream cheese mixture and stir (by hand).
Spread into large pie plate or flat casserole dish.

Mix Ritz cracker crumbs and butter in a bowl.
Spread over lobster-shrimp mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until light brown.
Let sit about 15 minutes before serving so it cools down a bit and sets up.
Serve warm, lukewarm or room temp with Pita Chips, Bagel Chips or crackers.  Yum

I see snacking on this around the fire pit near the lake (actually in my back yard) while sipping wine. A happy Friday thought!
