How To Make Crab Dip
To make this crab dip, drain the lump crab. Then, chop 1/4 of a bell pepper into small pieces so that you have 1/4 cup of finely chopped bell pepper.
Next, zest a little bit of the lemon and squeeze the lemon juice.
Thoroughly combine the wedges of laughing cow cheese and 0-fat plain greek yogurt in a bowl. Then, add the lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, cracked pepper, salt, fresh chives, fresh parsley, old bay seasoning, and stone-ground mustard to the bowl. Thoroughly combine the ingredients. After that, add the lump crab meat and finely chopped red bell pepper to the bowl and mix all of the ingredients.
Enjoy this crab dip warm or cold!
Is Crab Dip Hot Or Cold?
This crab dip can be served hot or cold. We love enjoying it both ways! It is the perfect appetizer or snack either way.
What To Eat With Hot Crab Dip
To enjoy this crab dip hot, you can warm it up in the oven at 400 degrees F for 12-15 minutes. Also, we love toasting some fresh bread and adding some of the crab dip on top. To do this, cut some fresh bread into slices and toast them in the oven at 400 degrees F for 10-12 minutes. Another delicious option is to add some crab dip to phyllo dough cups. Bake them at 400 degrees F for 10-12 minutes and enjoy! All of these are great ways to enjoy this hot crab dip.
How To Serve Cold Crab Dip
This crab dip is amazing cold, as well! Just combine all of the ingredients for this dip and then enjoy it with some crackers, sliced bread, or fresh vegetables. This crab dip is so versatile and perfect for any occasion.
Crab Dip Without Cream Cheese
This crab dip recipe does not call for any cream cheese. Instead, we used 4 wedges of laughing cow cheese. It gives it a perfect creamy texture while being low in calories! However, if you don’t have laughing cow cheese you can substitute it for 4 tablespoons of light or fat-free cream cheese. We love giving you options on how to make this crab dip recipe just right for you!
What Kind Of Crab Meat Is Best For Crab Dip?
For this crab dip recipe, we used lump crab meat. Fresh crab meat, canned crab meat, and really any crab meat will work perfectly in this recipe. Just make sure that the crab meat is cooked and use 6 ounces of it. Or, if you would like more crab dip feel free to double the recipe.
