This was very popular when I brought it to an Easter party. The only change I made was to combine the cocktail sauce with the cream cheese sour cream and mayo rather than layering them separately. I served it with melba toast rounds. Very good! Read More

This wasn't that good. I made once for a Christmas party and less than half was eaten. I even made it a second time to be fair and even less was taken. Read More

I liked this recipe but changed it a lot so only gave 4 stars. Like another reviewer I substited a good zesty seafood cocktail sauce and substited garlic & chive-flavored cream cheese for more flavor. Other changes that made it AWESOME: sweet peppers (yellow red and orange) instead of the green. 2 cups of rip tomato instead of 1. I also added black pepper Vege-Sal crushed red pepper paprika garlic power and 2 cloves of garlic. By making those changes it was spicy with garlic and had a great smoked taste. It may be too spicy for some but we like heat. Read More

I've made this numerous times and it's always a hit. I used the imitation crab sticks and shred them and use the canned baby shrimp. I've also made it with just cream cheese as the bottom layer (minus the mayo/sour cream) Read More

Excellent recipe! Take it to a new flavor and mix all ingredients then spoon into a mushroom cap - put into a large baking pan with 2 pats of butter bake until brown - awesome! Read More

I really liked this dip and so did my guests. It was pretty and had that familiar crab dip taste with a twist. Read More

we love this dip for many special occasions. I have used more crab and larger shrimp for a more distinct flavour. We eat this with nachos-plain or flavoured- or crackers. If you can make it a day or 2 before needed the flavours blend together nicely Read More

Fantastic! We always gorge ourselves whenever I make this. If only they made crackers smaller so we could get them in our mouths faster!:) Read More

I didn't have the cocktail sauce so I used a cup of catsup with some horseradish dash of salt and sugar and a few drops of fresh lemon juice. Also used red yellow and green peppers for color. A huge hit at our New Year's Eve party will definitely make this again. Read More
