Ultimate Crab Dip

  • Rating ****


  • One 10- or 12-ounce can cream of mushroom soup
  • One 8-ounce package cream cheese
  • 1 package unflavored gelatin, softened in 1/4 cup water
  • 8 ounces lump crabmeat
  • 1 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • Assorted crackers


Grease a 3-cup seafood mold. Combine the soup, cream cheese, and softened gelatin in a saucepan and heat until hot and bubbly, about 5 minutes. Stir well to make sure that the gelatin is completely dissolved and that there are no lumps. Add the crabmeat, celery, green onion, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and seasoned salt. Stir gently but thoroughly.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared mold and smooth the top with a spatula or knife. Cover with plastic wrap. Transfer to the refrigerator and chill until firm, about 3-6 hours.

When ready to serve, remove the plastic wrap and loosen the edges of the mousse by running a knife around the sides. Invert onto a serving dish. The mousse will slip out in a few minutes.

Serve with crackers.
