I cannot resist this dip when I make it, and looks like none of my friends can either! This Hot Blue Crab Dip Recipe is rich and complex and will fill your tastebuds demanding you have more.
About 12 years ago, I went to Baltimore for a family reunion. One of the restaurants we went to, can’t remember the name it’s been so long, served up a delicious blue crab dip. Well, in true fashion, I came home and started trying to recreate the dip. I think with this recipe, I may have surpassed their dip.
Make this in advance and refrigerate to store. I usually make it the night before.
Hot Blue Crab Dip Recipe
- 1 cup mayonnaise
12 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, fresh
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon old bay Seafood seasoning
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 dash sherry
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon cayenne, or more to taste
2 each green onions, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
1 pound blue crab meat, drained (Phillips or Chicken of the Sea is best)
Combine cream cheese and mayonnaise first and combine well to remove all cream cheese lumps. Add all remaining ingredients except crab. Mix until well combined. Fold in crab *DO NOT STIR*. You want the crab to be lumpy.
Put in a small crock pot and heat. Serve with Tortilla chips. This recipe will make 3 little dipper crock pots full. I usually fill the dip up throughout a party. Or, put out more than one!
