  • This dip is absolutely AMAZING, my husband and I loved it! I used the whipping cream, only 2 large green onions, omitted the bell pepper and used chicken base. I wasn't sure about the dry white wine so opened a bottle of Yellow Tail Riesling and used a couple of tsp of it! It turned out so good and will be a new appetizer for our get togethers! Thanks!

  • I tried your Blue Crab Dip it taste just like Joe's Crab Shack's. It was sooo good.

  • Well, I tried your recipe for the blue crab dip. At first I thought that it could never be like Joe's Crab Shack, but I gotta hand it to ya, It's pretty damn good!!! Thank you for sharing your recipe with us!!

  • Made this to take to a party - multiplied the recipe by 3 - never went - had to eat it all between the two of us. What a shame! It was so good! It was all gone in a couple of days. Delicious!

  • Try dipping 1/2 inch slices of French Baguette bread instead of tortilla chips.

  • This dip is remarkable! We made it for a dinner party and it was everybody's favorite.

  • I tried this last night. I had to use the chicken bouillon because I was unable to find the shrimp base. We loved the dip but it was a bit salty. I will try harder to find the shrimp base for the next batch and see if that eliminates a bit of the salt, otherwise I will cut down on the chicken bouillon amount. We served with pita chips. Delicious! We will make this over and over again. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!
