Hot Crab Dip – Party Perfect!


I’ve been making this recipe for well over 20 years. I’m not sure about your friends but, in my group it’s an absolute necessity to double this recipe!

Arbutus RV Fresh BC CrabWhen I first discovered this recipe, I wasn’t living where fresh seafood was as abundant as here on Vancouver Island. I loved it then but, it’s even better now, with fresh crab! 





1 8-ounce package of cream cheese

1/3 cup mayonnaise

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 Tbsp water

1 Tbsp horseradish

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (or more, to taste)

1/4 teaspoon of Tabasco to taste

1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheeese

1 cup of fresh lump crab meat


Preheat oven to 350°F. Beat together the cream cheese, mayonnaise, lemon juice and water, until smooth. Mix in the Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, and horseradish. Fold in the lump crab meat. Place in an oven-proof casserole serving dish.

Bake until bubbly and heated through, about 20 minutes. Serve with crackers or thinly sliced baguette.
