Poor Man's Crab Dip

Poor Man's Crab Dip

Ready in 45 minutes

This is a cold crab dip recipe that is made with immitation crab meat. Being from Maryland, I know there is nothing like real Blue Crab chunks, but lets face it.. it's expensive. I made this recipe up because I was tired of buying pre-made crab dips in the store and constantly being dissatisfied with the flavor. I hope you enjoy this easy Poor Man's Crab Dip.

"Fantastic! The only thing that would make it better would be real crab but then that would be a completely different recipe! Lol Nice mellow tasty dip! None of the flavors are too over bearing! Just right!"

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
1 1/2 Pounds Immitation Crab Meat

Preparation

Using a food processor, finely chop all the crab meat. In a large bowl, add all the ingredients and mix well. The Old Bay seasoning amount depends on your own personal preference. When I made this recipe recently, I discovered I had no Old Bay and the dip was still tasty. As far as the brand of crab meat, I like to use Aquamar. I think it has a good flavor for dips and crab cakes and it is inexpensive compared to other brands. Feel free to add other ingredients like fresh parsley, lemon juice, etc to make it your own.

Btw, this recipe yields a large amount. So if you don't have help eating it, you may want to freeze left overs for later. (Or be like me and eat on it slowly for a week..yum!)
