"This is just the best crab dip ever! Try it and I promise, it will all be eaten and the recipe asked for! Best served with buttery, round crackers, but excellent with raw veggies too! Adjust the amounts of imitation crab and hot pepper sauce to taste."

How could anyone take this recipe, make it and then rave about how good it tastes. I do not know what part of the counrty Angela or anyone who gave this a good review are located but in Maryland putting the words crab and imitation in the same sentence is taboo. Although her recipe has the makings for a good dip I strongly recommend using REAL fresh crab meat ( from the Maryland Chesapeake Bay if you can ) and see the difference. Would anyone eat an imitation Filet Mignon?


double or more the crab used in the orginal recipe. The orginal amount was scant and did not give the dip enough crap flavor or texture. More than doubling the meat will allow the spread to hold together and spread better. I added quite a bit my tabasco and a dash of red pepper to give it a zing. The basic recipe is great, only ajustments to the amount of meat were necessary.

Made this exactly as in recipe, but I used one can of Starkist Crabmeat along with the 1/2 lb of imitation crabmeat. I am serving this dip at a Super Bowl Party, and will put mini pumpernickle bread slices and tortilla chips for dipping. I think the shredded cheddar cheese should be cut in half, because I taste more cheese than crabmeat, and I did add extra hot sauce. Overall, a delicious, easy dip, that I think is fantasticly easy to whip up. I am certain all the people at the party will be enjoying this one.
