Hot Crab Dip

Recipe Summary

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Number of servings: 6


    • nonstick spray coating
    • 1 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
    • 1/2 cup orange juice
    • 1/4 cup lemon juice
    • 1 can (14 oz) artichoke hearts, well-drained, rinsed and chopped
    • 2/3 cup fat-free mayonnaise dressing
    • 1/3 cup sliced green onions
    • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1/4 cup diced pimiento
    • 1 can (6 oz) crabmeat, drained, flaked, and cartilage removed


Spray an unheated medium saucepan with nonstick coating. Heat over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook and stir until tender. Remove from heat.

Add orange and lemon juice, artichokes, mayonnaise dressing, onions, cheese, and pimiento. Gently fold in crabmeat.

Transfer to a 1-quart casserole dish. Bake, uncovered, in a 400 degree F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly. Cool 5 minutes. Stir before serving.

Serve warm with pita chips, vegetable dippers, or assorted crackers.

Serving suggestion: Pita chips are great low-fat dippers for this scrumptious dip. To make the chips, cut 4 pita rounds in half horizontally. Cut each half into 6 wedges. Place in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in a 350 degree F oven 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp.
