Got a fantastic recipe for seafood dip? Crab or shrimp?

Asked by Aster (18320points) January 18th, 2014

At Christmas we used to go over to our friends’ house and she’d serve this amazing seafood dip. I couldn’t stop eating it but didn’t want to ask her if she made it or what was in it. After chowing down on it for half an hour she actually whisked it away from the coffee table! She wanted the rest for other guests! So can anybody help me out with either homemade or store bought seafood dip? I remember it was white.

- You didn’t mention whether the dip you ate at the party was hot or cold. There are hot crab dips that are made with cheese that are delicious, too. I’ve never made them at home, but I’ve had them at parties and restaurants.


My Clam Dip is a cold dip served with potato chips. I don’t have it written-down – I learned it from watching my dad making it when I was a kid:

I use lowfat Neufchatel cheese in place of cream cheese, and one small can of clams per 8 oz. chuck of cheese. Let the cheese soften, open the clams and drain the liquid, but reserve it. Mix the clams in with the cream cheese.

The other ingredients I add to taste: Worchestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, smoked paprika (sweet or hot is optional), and horseradish. We happened to have fresh horseradish a couple weeks ago when I made it and we shaved that in and it was so much better than the jarred stuff, but it isn’t always easy to find.

I stir in the clam juice from the can so soften the texture so the chips won’t break and give any extra to my cats. It’s always good to let dips chill in the fridge for at least an hour for the flavors to blend, then stir them up again before serving.

Why do you not ask Gordon Ramsay

Some place I have the recipe for a delicious warm crab dip that used 2 of the tiny jars of Kraft Cheese – Old English flavor. I can look for it if you like, or you could do a search with those ingredients.

This One sounds pretty tasty.

What about a Salmon dip? It’s addictive. 1 can of Sock Eye Salmon, 8 oz cream cheese, one bunch of green onions, 1 TBLS of lemon juice and 1 TBLS of smoke sauce. Debone the salmon, chop up the onions and mix everything together. SO good.

Curious…why in the word didn’t you want to ask her how she made it?

@Dutchess_III so many people do not want to give away their recipes and I didn’t want to cause bad feelings. I mean, in case she was like that.
@hearkat this dip had not been baked. So why it was so great I just can’t figure out. I did make a baked dip with canned crab topped with mozzarella that I loved but I ended up eating the entire thing.

Step awAY from the dip @Aster!

@Aster – my dip is not baked, either. I asked about the hot dips because I was trying to get more details from you about the preparation and other possible ingredients in the dip, so we might be able to help you figure out what made the dip you had so addictive.
