Macaroni Grill’s Fonduta Gamberi

2 cups half-and-half
1 tablespoon clam juice
2 tablespoons dry white wine
3 tablespoons butter
1 shallot finely chopped
2 tablespoons flour
4 cups roughly-chopped spinach
1 cup canned artichoke hearts – chopped
8 large shrimp – peeled, cleaned,
and chopped
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper – or more to taste
1/8 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese – (optional)

In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine half-and-half, clam juice and white wine.

In a separate saucepan, melt butter. Add shallots and sauté until translucent. Add flour to butter mixture, stirring until flour is absorbed. Cook, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes.

Add heated half-and-half mixture all at once to the shallot mix, stirring constantly with a wire whip to remove any lumps. Add spinach, artichokes, shrimp, cayenne and black pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, so the mixture does not scorch.

Remove mixture from heat, and stir in cheese, if desired. Pour dip into bowl and serve hot.
