Ingredients

---

  • 2 - 6oz cans crab meat squeezed dry*
  • 1 cup finely chopped cooked shrimp patted dry*
  • 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 green onion finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the goat cheese (or softened cream cheese), sour cream (or mayo, or a combination of both), Dijon mustard, sriracha, onion powder and garlic powder. Mix with a whisk until well combined, smooth and creamy.
  • Add the crab meat, chopped shrimp, green onion, parsley and cheeses (save a handful of cheese to put on top of the dip) and mix delicately with a rubber spatula until well combined
  • Transfer the dip to an oven-safe dish, sprinkle with the reserved handful of grated cheese and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the cheese has melted and is bubbling on the sides and the top has turned golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
  • Garnish with a sprinkle of chopped parsley and a cooked shrimp, if desired and serve with sliced crusted bread, crackers or your favorite crudités.

Notes

*Be sure to really remove as much moisture as you can from the crab and shrimp meat or you might end up with a soupy dip. If you want to play it really safe, add a teaspoon of corn starch to the cheese mixture before whisking.
