Help me perfect my Paleo Crab Dip. Please.

Definitely needs some perfecting as I've only tried it twice, but I made some crab dip to put on burgers and eat with veggies that turns out pretty awesome. Suggestions from those of you with actual cooking skills are encouraged.

Two 6 oz. cans of crab meat

One 14 oz. can of coconut milk

garlic powder

onion powder

chili powder

dill

salt

pepper

hot sauce (because I put that sh*t on everything)

Mix everything up in a saucepan and heat on medium low until your house starts smelling awesome, stir frequently. My skills with spices are lacking so I kind of just sprinkle stuff on, taste and repeat until I like the taste.

Next time I make it I'm going to try browning the top under the broiler for a minute or two. Definitely not low on calories but full of really good fat and decent protein from the crab.

Let me know how to improve this!

Butter!!! Good God how did I forget butter?!?! The lemon juice and ginger sound like awesome additions too. Thanks for the link!

I would try using fresh garlic and onions instead of powdered - the flavour is much better in my opinion - and fresh garlic and crab are mad for each other!

I don't know if this recipe will help (maybe pro-portion wise) but it is one of my favorite dishes from an Indian restaurant in CT, and this is their actual recipe! It is called Konkan Crab and it is really amazing, but I don't think it would take on the same texture as a typical crab dip. They do use butter, but not much, and a lot of coconut milk: http://www.food.com/recipe/konkan-crab-387962. I hope you find that which can satisfy your cravings :)

I would get rid of the coconut milk and replace with paleo mayo. Also through some lemon in there with some seasoning salt and then you will have some great paleo crab dip.

I make a artichoke dip that could be adapted (its definitely not non dairy), I'll have to try it myself next time I find some fresh crab!!

1 tsp chopped garlic 1 cup homemade fermented mayo 1 cup sour cream (home made) 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese Artichoke hearts chopped (about 1 cup or more)...or add the crab 1/2 lemon, squeezed

mix and cover with foil, bake 350 for 1 hour uncover and top with more Parmesan cheese, cook til browned

yummers!!
