This is very delicious. You can make it as described or you can just spread the cream cheese on a serving plate top with crab (real or surimi imitation) and pour the cocktail sauce over and use sturdy crackers to scoop it up. Read More

Forget this recipe and choose one using REAL crab meat! (I tried three others) They were all better than this one using imitation! I was humiliated that I served it before trying it first. Read More

I LOVE THIS!!! I made it for a party my guests could not get enough & asked for the recipe - and at the next party the hostess made it. It is so simple & yummy - sometimes I grate a little onion for an added kick. Read More

This dip does not stay long on the table. I have also used a variation of it mix the crab meat ( I use real meat from the can) with the cream cheese add about a tablespoon of mayo and put in a serving dish spread the seafood sauce on top. Very Very tasty! Read More

This came out pretty good. I agree with the previous Ritz cracker comment. I bought a craker called Sociables and it doesn't have that buttery taste like Ritz that would go so well with this recipe. I am going to buy some Ritz tomorrow! And I think I will dice up some green onions on top to add a little more zip. Read More

As a child this was one of my favorites. I have found a couple of ways to dress it up a tad. I used Philadelphia Light Garden Veggie cream cheese to add a bit more flavor. I threw in a tablespoon of mayo a couple dashes of hot sauce and some Parmesan cheese (basically whatever I had laying around) and served the cocktail sauce extremely lightly on the dip and put some more on the side. It was a hit. Read More

My family has been making this recipe for parties and special occasions for years. One plate full never lasts long! The only thing we do differently is that we sprinkle the top of the cocktail sauce with chopped green onions and salad shrimp. Its always one reason I look forward to the holidays! Read More
