This easy creamy crab dip is made with canned crab meat, but feel free to use freshly cooked crab if you have it. Or use convenient imitation crab meat, which is made with white fish and often a small amount of crab meat. Either way, your seafood dip will be a hit!
Cream cheese and mayonnaise are combined with the crabmeat to make this creamy, tasty dip. Carrot and celery sticks are excellent choices. It’s a very easy dip to prepare with just a few simple seasonings.
Serve the dip with vegetables, chips, crostini, or crackers. It’s excellent for a party or gathering, or whip some up for the family to enjoy on movie night.
Add a tablespoon or two of chopped fresh parsley to the dip for extra color. Cilantro or chopped green onions can add some nice flavor as well. If you’re feeling indulgent, make the dip with all or part cooked lobster. See the tips and variations and reader comments below the recipe for more add-ins and substitution ideas.
