Cold Cajun Crab Dip

One of my husband’s guilty pleasures is the cajun crab dip in the seafood section of our grocery store. While there’s no question it’s delicious, it’s not exactly healthy. I decided to take a stab at recreating it just a bit better for you. I used real lump crab meat because I got a pound of it for only $9, which was a flippin’ STEAL (P.S. if you can score a membership to a Restaurant Depot, do it!). You can always use imitation crab meat or a mixture of real and imitation if that works better for you. The consensus at our family crab feast. . . I need to make this again—it was a hit!

Cold Cajun Crab Dip

1 lb real or imitation crab meat

1/2 cup fat free sour cream

16 oz fat free cream cheese, softened

1 tbsp hot sauce

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1 tbsp Cajun seasoning

1 cup shredded fat free cheddar cheese

1/2 cup diced green onion

2 tsp minced garlic

1 tsp Italian seasoning

1 tsp horseradish


Mix together sour cream, cream cheese, hot sauce, Worcestershire, Cajun seasoning, garlic, Italian seasoning, and horseradish. Gently fold in the crab meat, onions, and cheese until it’s fully incorporated. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before serving with crackers, carrot sticks, celery, and/or baked tortilla chips.

I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and colleague. And trying to balance all of those roles at once can be utterly exhausting. Being the Type A control freak that I am, I try to run my life like a well-oiled machine. But sometimes the wheels get a bit squeaky (or just fly off completely, let's be honest). I have to slow down (yeah right, I know), give the different parts of my life a little tune-up and get back on the road.
