"Every Christmas Eve, our family has a special hors d’oeuvre supper and this seafood-stuffed dip is a much-requested staple," says Terry Flewelling of Lacombe, Alberta. "I got the recipe from a friend, who made it for my daughter’s wedding shower. It’s so rich, elegant and creamy—and a huge hit at parties any time of year at all!"
