Step 1

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

In a large skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil. Add shrimp and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cook until shrimp is firm and pink, 3 to 4 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly, then coarsely chop.

In a large bowl, mix together lemon juice and zest, cream cheese, mayonnaise, mozzarella, Parmesan, 2 tablespoons parsley, and cooked chopped shrimp. Season with salt and pepper.

Transfer to a small baking dish and bake until bubbly and golden, 25 minutes. If desired, broil on low for the last 2 to 3 minutes for a more golden look.

Garnish with remaining parsley and serve with pita chips
