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!
your Blue Crab Dip it taste just like Joe's Crab
Shack's. It was sooo good.
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
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!
dipping 1/2 inch slices of French Baguette bread
instead of tortilla chips.
is remarkable! We made it for a dinner party and
it was everybody's favorite.
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!
