1/4 cup chives (chopped)

1 teaspoon chopped parsley for garnish


Cook the shrimp by adding to a pot of boiling water.Cook for 5 minutes, or until they are pink. Drain the shrimp and rinse with cold water to allow handling. Once the shrimp are cool, peel away the skins, wash, and cut into smaller chunks. Set aside.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, Add milk, and cream cheese cut up into small chunks. Stir slowly, adding the hot sauce, chili powder, garlic, coriander, black pepper, Old Bay and lemon juice.

Once the cream cheese is melted down, add the cheeses and stir until it has a smooth consistency. Add crab meat, chopped shrimp, mayonnaise, diced red pepper, and chives. If the mixture becomes too thick, add more milk until you have a smooth creamy dip.

Stir slowly over low heat for a further 3 to 5 minutes to heat the crab meat and shrimp. Pour into a large bowl, or toasted bread bowl, and garnish with parsley.
