Legal Seafoods Crab Dip

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Lorac

NOTE ! post review - I use Costco or Trader Joe's canned crabmeat because it is all crab with only a tiny amount of liquid. Oh how I miss Legal Seafoods in Boston ! My most favorite seafood restaurant. I was so happy to find a recipe for this fantastic dip.

I think it would be beneficial to rinse and drain the crab meat in cheese cloth or a fine strainer to eliminate some of the water and salt.
