Crab, Shrimp and Artichoke Dip

McCormick & Schmick's Recipe

Serves 8-10

3/4 cup cream cheese
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup coarsely ground artichoke hearts
3/4 pound Blue Crab meat (Dungeness is also a favorite)
3/4 pound bay shrimp
80 pieces fried pita, crustini or tortilla chip
1/2 cup Pico de Gallo, for garnish

Beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer for 1-2 minutes until smooth. Combine the mustard, mayonnaise, and seasonings, and blend thoroughly. Fold in artichokes, the crab and the shrimp. Do not over mix! Bake the mixture in a casserole dish and serve with the pita, crustini or tortilla chips. Optionally you may try melting cheddar cheese on top of the casserole or even over the chips for added color and flavor. Garnish the top with the Pico de Gallo.
