This Imitation Crab dip is full of refreshing and spicy surprises that tickles your taste buds in all the right places.

Imitation crab like any good master of disguise comes to your house and livens up the party. Here are three reasons why you should invite this imitation crab to your dinner plate/appy table and let the party begin.

  1. It’s cheap
  2. It’s good tasting
  3. It’s more fun to eat than watching Godzilla pummel your neighborhood ninja. (Wrong! A Godzilla/Ninja fight is way more fun—but make this delicious recipe to snack on while you are watching the main event!)


This crab dip is easy to prepare and served cold. You can make it a day ahead and let all the yummy flavors blend into a beautiful synching heaven. If you would like to splurge on the real deal (actual crab meat) any kind of canned crab meat will work well.

I like to serve this with cucumbers, carrot sticks and long radishes (if you can find them) for a healthy and refreshing snack, but crackers and bread sticks work nicely as well. You could also slather it between two slices of bread and call it a sandwich.

Add as much or as little hot sauce as you like but remember, if you are planning on making this ahead, the spices will give off more heat the longer they have to melt into this dip.



  • 1 cup fat free sour cream
  •  1 cup low fat cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons lemon pepper
  • 1 cup of shredded cucumbers
  •  1 1/2 teaspoons ground white pepper 
  • 1 teaspoon of hot pepper sauce
  • 2 cups of chopped imitation crab meat or you can splurge and buy Jumbo lumb blue crab meat
  •  1 cup  Catalina or French  salad dressing 


Method to the Radness:

In a medium sized bowl mix the sour cream, cream cheese, lemon pepper, white pepper, hot sauce, and imitation crabmeat.   Add  salad dressing to make the dip a pinkish color. Mix well. Let the dip chill for 4 to 8 hours.
