Special Feature: Products Sally Recommends
6 oz. crabmeat
1 lb. shrimp
1 cup cubed Swiss cheese
⅓ cup chopped green pepper
1 tsp. salt
½ cup mayonnaise
2 tsp. lemon juice
5 cooked artichokes
Break crabmeat and shrimp into chunks. Toss with cheese, green pepper, and salt. Blend mayonnaise and lemon juice, add to mixture.
To cook artichokes: place in boiling water (salted) to cover. Add olive oil, a few cloves of garlic or lemon juice. Cover; simmer 45 minutes to a hour, depending on the size of the artichokes. When a leaf pulls out easily, artichokes are cooked. Drain.
Remove the small center leaves of each artichoke, leaving a cup. Carefully remove choke. Fill with the seafood mixture and place in a large baking dish. Pour hot water around the artichokes (about 1” high).
Cover and bake at 375º about 35 minutes or until heated through.
