"This is a skinnier version of classic Maryland crab dip. We tend to use crab dip as a condiment in Maryland, we put it on anything! Try using veggies instead of bread to dip to keep the calories down. This is a great way to use up those loose crab claws!"

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place Neufchatel cheese in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Heat until cheese softens to a creamy consistency, 2 to 3 minutes. Add milk and mayonnaise, reduce heat to low, and stir until blended. Add onion, celery, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and seafood seasoning; stir frequently until onion has softened slightly, 5 to 6 minutes.
  3. Transfer cheese sauce into a ceramic or glass baking dish. Mix in all but a small handful of mozzarella cheese. Carefully fold crabmeat into the dip, making sure it's evenly distributed. Top with remaining mozzarella and sprinkle with additional seafood seasoning.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly, 15 to 20 minutes. Garnish with cilantro.


  • Cook's Note:
  • When using canned crabmeat, I rinse it through a fine metal strainer and splash lemon juice on the meat to cut any fishy taste. If using already steamed and seasoned crabmeat, use a lighter hand on the Old Bay®. I also like to sprinkle breadcrumbs on top occasionally.
