Joe's Crab Shack Blue Crab Dip

Recipe Rating: 4.2 (6 reviews)

The number one appetizer on Joe's menu is called Blue Crab Dip but you don't need blue crab to clone it. You don't even need to use fresh crab. I used some delicious lump crabmeat from Phillip's Seafood that comes in 16-ounce cans (you may find it at Costco, Sam's Club, Walmart, and Vons) and the dip turned out great. You could also use the crabmeat that comes in 6-ounce cans found at practically every supermarket—you'll need two of them. Just be sure to get the kind that includes leg meat, and don't forget to drain off the liquid before you toss it in.

Tried this recipe for a party at work. Everyone loved it. I used fresh crab meat rather than can. I also used old bay seasoning with the same measurements at the salt. And I added some white cheddar cheese just to make it a bit more cheesy. It was a hit!!!
yummy Crab Dip

This crab dip is so easy and really delicious. I just mixed it all in an oven proof dish so nothing to clean up except the one dish. I made it just like the recipe but used 1 jalapeno minced fine as I didn't have the Anaheim pepper. I also didn't have any mild red pepper so just used red bell pepper. We used baguette slices and small crackers.....it was very very good. Will for sure make it again.

I tried this recipe and it is just like Joe's. I get this everytime I go and love it. I made it for a couple that we had over and they thought the same thing, it was just as great as the original. Thanks!!!
