This amazing classic cold crab dip is a favorite appetizer recipe for us. It’s easy to create fresh, delicious homemade flavor with simple ingredients.

I’ve had several people tell me this cold crab dip is the best they’ve tried — I think you’ll like it as well. If you love crab dips, make sure you try our crab rangoon dip and our hot crab dip as well. (For another classic appetizer, try these cucumber bites.)

Cold Crab Dip:

Let me tell you, it’s easy, delicious and quick. You’re going to love this cold crab dip.

You could serve this recipe a number of ways: it’s the perfect appetizer for guests, you can make it spicy, or you could make it a hot crab dip by serving it baked. I have a friend who always makes a crab dip and keeps it warm in her crockpot for parties, which I think is genius.

Any way you make it, it’s going to be yummy.

Growing up on an island, I’ve always loved seafood and crab is a favorite for me. You can make this quick dip a little more spicy or try adding something like artichoke or spinach. Or you could make it Buffalo style. .

If you’ve been following along the last few days, you’ll know I’ve partnered with Princess Cruises to share memories from — and recipes inspired by — the trip Mike and I recently took to Alaska.

This cold crab dip recipe was actually inspired by one of my favorite moments of our Princess cruise in Alaska. We were in Glacier Bay. It’s a trip to the “Ice Ages.” It’s a national park and completely awe inspiring.

Not only was it visually stunning, you could hear the ice moving… it was such a unique experience, unlike anything else I’ve witnessed. It was mind blowing to be sitting in our room, looking out our balcony and see this natural phenomenon before us.

On this particular morning, I was watching Glacier Bay outside, taking in all the sights and while eating breakfast on our balcony. I had crab for breakfast along with the most delicious smoked salmon and quiche. What an amazing way to start the day.

After returning home, I’ve thought of that quiet moment on our balcony enjoying breakfast several times. I’ll admit, the crab I ate for breakfast has danced around my head quite a bit too. It was very delicious. 

With that crab for inspiration, the team here at Spaceships and Laser Beams and I came up with this crab dip recipe.
