Back of The Ultimate Artichoke Crab Dip The weekend before Thanksgiving, my father and I were watching Food Network together. We were multitasking, computers in our laps, as we browsed online recipes searching for the perfect Thanksgiving appetizer recipe.Suddenly we were captivated by a dish — a hot artichoke and fresh crab mixture — that Tyler Florence was making on the television. It was his ultimate party appetizer: artichoke crab dip with Parmesan cheese and crostini. Salivating, my father and I decided immediately we would make that dip. We made the right decision, it's insanely delicious and was gone in a matter of minutes. Since then, I've made this dip three times! It's cheesy, gooey, and absolutely divine. Don't be afraid of the crab, this dip is not fishy. If it sounds like something you might enjoy, check out the recipe and . Artichoke Crab Dip Modified from Tyler Florence Ingredients3 large globe artichokes 1 cup mayonnaise 1 cup sour cream 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 heaping tablespoon fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely minced Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 1 cup fresh lump crab meat, picked over 3/4 cup grated parmesan Croutons, for serving, recipe below Directions Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Meanwhile, trim artichokes down to their hearts, working quickly so they don't go too brown (you can rub with lemon juice as you go if you like). Remove the outer leaves and scoop out the middle. Peel the rough outside off the stem. Place the hearts in the water and cook, simmering until tender, about an hour. Drain the artichoke hearts and set aside until they are cool enough to handle. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon, parsley, salt and pepper in the bowl of a food processor. Add the cooked artichoke hearts and blitz to combine. Blend until you have a thick artichoke puree. Turn mixture out into a large bowl and stir in lump crabmeat and 1/2 cup parmesan cheese. Stir well and season with more salt and pepper, if necessary. Pour into an oven proof dish (a large ramekin works well). Top with remaining parmesan cheese. Bake dip for 10 to 12 minutes until heated through and top is nice and bubbly. Serve with croutons. Serves 8-10. Croutons: 1 French baguette Extra-virgin olive oil Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut baguette on a slight bias and lay out on a sheet tray. Drizzle with olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes until golden brown and crispy. Serve with Artichoke Crab Dip.

KadBunny 8 years Omg yuuuum!! the fat :D I think it's cute how you and your dad looked for recipes too. heehee. fuzzles 8 years I've made this quite a few times in the past, but have cheated and used canned/jarred artichoke hearts and canned crab meat. It was nummy, but no doubt using the fresh hearts and meat would take the dish over the top! (I also like to add either a couple shots of chipotle Tabasco or a pinch or two of smoked paprika.) brookrene 8 years This looks delicious. :drool: I'm saving to my favorites, I'll have to make this soon!
