Maine Shrimp Dip Appetizer Recipe

I bought a small supply of my favorite tiny Maine shrimp the other day from a "street vendor" on Mount Desert Island (you've seen trucks parked along side Maine roads with "FRESH SEAFOOD" signs) and was searching online for an alternative to my favorite recipe. I found a few on Downeast.com and thought I'd post those, but wanted to give you mine as well, it's a keeper!

The shrimp in the photo are raw and unpeeled, I buy them raw and peeled, ready to toss into the recipe.

Add 1 pound of raw shrimp (if they were frozen, just thaw and squeeze out excess water), toss with 1 cup real mayonnaise, 1 cup of grated parmesan (I buy a block of fresh and throw it in the food processor to obtain small pebbles/granules to toss into anything), 1 clove of garlic, a dash of tobasco, salt and freshly ground black pepper (coarse) and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. Spoon on top of slices of fresh, crusty bread and enjoy!
