This was very popular when I brought it to an Easter party. The only change I made was to combine the cocktail sauce with the cream cheese, sour cream and mayo rather than layering them separately. I served it with melba toast rounds. Very good!
This wasn't that good. I made once for a Christmas party and less than half was eaten. I even made it a second time to be fair and even less was taken.
I've made this numerous times and it's always a hit. I used the imitation crab sticks and shred them and use the canned baby shrimp. I've also made it with just cream cheese as the bottom layer (minus the mayo/sour cream)
I liked this recipe, but changed it a lot, so only gave 4 stars. Like another reviewer, I substited a good zesty seafood cocktail sauce and substited garlic & chive-flavored cream cheese for more flavor. Other changes that made it AWESOME: sweet peppers (yellow, red, and orange) instead of the green. 2 cups of rip tomato instead of 1. I also added black pepper, Vege-Sal, crushed red pepper, paprika, garlic power, and 2 cloves of garlic.
By making those changes, it was spicy with garlic and had a great smoked taste. It may be too spicy for some, but we like heat.
Excellent recipe! Take it to a new flavor and mix all ingredients then spoon into a mushroom cap - put into a large baking pan with 2 pats of butter bake until brown - awesome!
we love this dip for many special occasions. I have used more crab and larger shrimp for a more distinct flavour. We eat this with nachos-plain or flavoured- or crackers. If you can make it a day or 2 before needed , the flavours blend together nicely
I really liked this dip and so did my guests. It was pretty and had that familiar crab dip taste with a twist.
Fantastic! We always gorge ourselves whenever I make this. If only they made crackers smaller so we could get them in our mouths faster! :)
