Lighter Crab Dip
50 mins (prep 20, cooking 30)
14 ingredients
8-10 servings
I make a crab dip based on one by Pet-R-Us I took it along to a 'zaar (we were members of Recipezaar when we met many years ago) BBQ yesterday where I was encouraged by the others to post my version. We catch, pick and freeze our own crab meat, so I just grab a packet or two out-I think I usually aim to use around a cup, but it's OK if it's a bit more. I actually squeeze each artichoke as dry as I can, or the liquid spoils the dish. I like to serve this on crusty fresh sour dough baguette slices, but you can use chips, crackers or vegetable crudites if you prefer!
