Blue Crab Dip Recipe (Joe’s Crab Shack)


  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups crabmeat (canned is fine)
  • 1/4 cup diced green onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced mild red chili pepper
  • 1 tablespoon mild green chili pepper (Anaheim)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese


  • Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley


  1. Preheat oven to broil.
  2. Combine the cream cheese with crab, green onion, chili peppers, salt and white pepper in a medium bowl. Stir well to combine.
  3. Spread mixture into the bottom of an oven-safe dish. Use a wide dish for this so that the dip is only about an inch deep in the bottom.
  4. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the surface of the dip.
  5. Broil for 3 to 4 minutes or until the cheese on top begins to brown.
  6. Sprinkle paprika over the dip, followed by fresh minced parsley. Serve with tortilla chips or crackers for dipping.

Serves 4 to 6 as an appetizer.
