Title: Irish's crab butter
Categories: Dips, Party, Usenet
Yield: 1 Batch
1/2 c Butter
1 c Cream cheese
1/4 c Mayonnaise
6 oz Crab meat
1 lg Onion, chopped fine
2 T Lemon juice
1/2 t Garlic, crushed (or a
-pinch of instant garlic)
1 T Worcestershire sauce
Allow butter and cream cheese to soften before starting. Mix mayo,
butter and cream cheese. Do not use a blender, as the mixture will
get soupy. Add lemon juice, garlic, worcestershire sauce, pepper,
etc. to taste.
Mix in crab (or whatever) and onion. Of the choices, I feel crab is
the best. Chill at least two hours, cover with cocktail sauce. This
is an important part of the recipe.
I recommend Wakefield crab meat, Shrimp or Shrimp & Crab. I usually
use Crosse & Blackwell's cocktail sauce, but feel free to use any
kind that you trust. You can make your own simple cocktail sauce by
mixing 3 parts catsup to 1 part horseradish and adding tabasco,
garlic, worcestershire sauce to taste.
Serve over Triscuits (they're nice and strong, to survive heavy
scooping) or veggies. Irish is the friend from whom I got this recipe.
* Incredible crab or shrimp dip -- My first encounter with this dip
came at a New Year's party a few years ago. I was standing by the
munchies table trying not to embarrass myself too much, when a woman
came up to me and pointed out this dip. She explained to me that at a
previous party she had lost control eating it and got a spoon!
It's incredibly rich, and requires a lot of will power not to eat too
much. Yield: Serves 6 gluttons.
: Difficulty: easy.
: Time: 5 minutes preparation, 2 hours cooling.
: Precision: approximate measurement OK.
