This savory seafood dip is baked right in the bread bowl and is served hot. I usually buy a sourdough bread bowl, but French tastes really good, too. —Laurel Leslie, Sonora, California

"I made this dip for a fondue party. I was in charge of making the cheese fondues and wanted to try something a little different. This dip stood out among the classic cheese and chocolate fondue. I really liked that it did not require a fondue pot because we were already using them all. Everyone thought the dip tasted great and appreciated that it didn't have a strong "fishy" taste. I did not add parsley or chives because I did not have these ingredients. I used two tablespoons of chopped green onion instead."
