Mock Crab Dip


My SMIL (step-mother in-law) asked me to make a crab dip for her annual Christmas party. Being shellfish challenged I had no idea what real crab dip should or would taste like… so I whipped up a batch of this faux version and the critics seem to love it.

Feel free to substitute with real jumbo lump crab meat if desired. Enjoy!
