Crab & Artichoke Dip

Some things are meant to go together, like peanut butter and jelly or in this case crab meat and artichokes. For this recipe I recommend our crab claw meat, or as it we call it, the dark meat of the crab. Our most affordable crab is also the most flavorful and can standup to the creamy blend of cheeses and artichoke hearts in this recipe. I grilled some premade naan bread to serve with the hot cheesy dip, but you can serve with your favorite crackers, crostini or even crudite. Perfect for Holiday entertaining!
