Layered Crab Rangoon Dip

  • Preparation Time20 mins
  • Serves10
  • DifficultyEasy
Two 8-ounce packages cream cheese, at room temperature
1/3 cup milk
1 pound fresh lump or jumbo lump crabmeat
One 8-ounce can whole water chestnuts, drained and chopped
3 tablespoons hot Chinese mustard
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup sweet-and-sour sauce

Beat together the cream cheese and milk in a large bowl with an electric mixer until smooth, about 2 minutes.

Combine the crabmeat, water chestnuts, mustard, onion, Worcestershire, soy sauce, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a medium bowl and toss gently to combine.

Spread out the cream cheese mixture in an even layer in a 9- by 13-inch baking dish. Spread the sweet-and-sour sauce on top, leaving about a 1-inch border of cream cheese all around. Spoon the crab mixture on top of the sweet-and-sour sauce. The dip can be prepared up to this point and refrigerated, covered, overnight.

Just before serving, scatter the lettuce, spring onions and coriander over the crab, leaving a 1-inch border all around. Serve with wonton skins, prawn crackers or rice crackers.
