  1. First, you want to cook the shrimp. If looking for inspiration, I suggest to use this easy and delicious Lemon Herb Garlic Butter Shrimp recipe.
  2. Then, let the shrimp cool a bit before chopping them up into pieces. 
  3. In a large bowl combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, yogurt or sour cream, shredded mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, garlic, lemon juice, herbs and seasonings. Please make sure that the cream cheese is softened, otherwise it will be a bit of a challenge to whip everything together. 
  4. Add diced shrimp to the cheesy mixture; stir and mix until everything is completely incorporated.
  5. Transfer the cheesy shrimp mixture to a lightly greased 2-quart baking dish.
  6. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until golden and bubbly.
  7. Remove from oven and serve immediately with veggies, like broccoli, cucumbers, bell peppers, and so on. Or, if low-carbing isn’t your forté, serve with pita chips, tortilla chips, crackers, etc…
