This is a special hot crab dip. I obtained the recipe from a wedding caterer at a beautiful Chesapeake Bay Wedding.
Never substitute claw or backfin and you will always have a hit! Everyone wants this recipe, It is best served with a crispy toast point or plain bagel chips , or crackers.
I like to serve it in a chafing dish over a sterno flame to keep warm.
