Hot and Creamy Crab Dip
What you need:
- 1/2 kilogram jumbo lump crab, shell removed
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 cup grated pepper jack cheese
- 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 cup cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup minced onion
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon hot sauce
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Using a hand mixer, beat together cream cheese, mayonnaise and sour cream in a bowl. Add the garlic, cheeses, onion, lemon juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper to the bowl and stir until all ingredients are well-combined. Fold in the crab. Transfer mixture to a baking dish and cook in a pre-heated oven (325F) until bubbling and golden brown, about 20 to 25 minutes. Serve with fresh vegetable slices, crackers or chips.
The Best Butter and Garlic Crab Legs
What you need:
- 1/2 kilogram king crab legs, sliced in half to expose the flesh
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 tablespoons salted butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
- 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
- Lemon slices
In a bowl, combine garlic, melted butter, parsley and lemon juice. Arrange the crab legs in a baking tray and drizzle with butter mixture. Reserve some of the mixture for dipping. Bake the crab legs in a pre-heated oven (375F) until heated through, about 5 minutes. Serve with dip and lemon slices - it's best to squeeze lemon juice over crab before consuming.
Delicious Baked Crab Crispy Sticks
What you need:
- 12 spring roll wrappers
- 1/2 cup cream cheese
- 3 tablespoons chopped crab meat
- 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
- Sweet and sour sauce
- Dash of salt
Combine the cream cheese, crab meat, sugar and sweet and sour sauce in a bowl. Season with salt and stir until ingredients are well-combined. Spoon about a teaspoon of the mixture in each spring roll wrapper and wrap. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil then arrange crab sticks on the sheet. Cook on a pre-heated oven (375F) for about 12 minutes or until crisp (turning once halfway through).
