low-carb crab dip

Submitted by: LYNNETH7

Introduction

a savory, slightly spicy crab dip. Works well cold or baked.... don't skimp on fresh ingredients-- the aromatics are amazing. This dip is great for summer picnics and parties, though you may want to double it. a savory, slightly spicy crab dip.

Ingredients

    1 pkg Philadelphia 1/3 reduced fat cream cheese (8oz)
    1 can (5oz) crab meat
    4 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
    1/2 cup skim milk
    1 clove garlic
    1/2 (the green part) of a scallion, finely chopped
    1 tsp lemon zest
    1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
    1 small pinch of crushed red pepper for heat (sub cayenne pepper if desired)

Directions

Combine cream cheese and milk, stir until creamy. Blend garlic and scallion in a food processor or finely chop. Combine all ingredients, chill in refrigerator. Eat with raw veggies for a low carb, high fiber snack. Makes 8 servings of about 1/4 cup.


If you want to try this dip hot, I suggest subsituting 3-4 oz of part skim mozzarella for the parmesan cheese. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for about 30 min or until bubbly and slightly golden.



For crab rangoon: fill wontons with 1.5 tbsp each. Pinch, and deep fry in vegetable oil until golden. Makes about 30.
