Crab Nachos with Chesapeake OMG! Pretzels

Take a culinary trip to the beach with this simple and fun seafood dish. The sourdough pretzel nuggets serve as the “chips” for these nachos and the Chesapeake seasoning blend gives you all the flavor you expect for a dish that features shellfish. The dressing is a simple version of what you’d find on a Crab Louie salad and it helps hold the seafood together on the nachos. We opted for crab with this recipe, but you could use small shrimp, scallops or a mixture of shellfish. This dish could be a light dinner or lunch or make a big batch to share with friends as an appetizer for a summer dinner party.
