Crab is one of those foods that is like a perfect life partner. It can go casual with a simple dunking in a vat of melted butter, or it can get all dressed up and mingle in a party of other ingredients. In other words, I like it.
When you think of summer in Greece, perhaps you think of the beautiful beaches and the deep crystal blue water. Perhaps you should be thinking of the things in the water!
My Medium Boy’s exact words were “Oh my God, this is delicious” when a spoonful of this dip hit his mouth. I’m not sure, but I think he may have liked it.
It’s the early 90s, Berkeley, Ca. I’m being treated to a nice dinner at Skates On The Bay, a surf-and-turf restaurant literally on the San Francisco Bay. We order the crab and artichoke dip with focaccia bread. I was hooked.

In all honesty, I don’t cook seafood as often as I would like to eat it. I really need to work on this.
