How to Make Keto Crab Rangoon Dip

Crab is expensive, so treat this recipe gently and make sure to use good quality ingredients. There aren’t many of them, so use the good stuff!

Start by mixing together your cheeses and green onion. Mix this well, then add the coconut aminos (or soy sauce if you’re not strict keto), Worchestershire sauce, garlic powder, and Sriracha sauce (for a bit of heat).

Once this is well-mixed, gently fold in your crab, and don’t over-mix it or you could break up the tender lumps of crab.

That’s it! Top it with the remaining cheese and bake it in the oven in a cute oven-safe serving dish until it is bubbly and golden on top. Dig in!

Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • Crab is expensive, and it comes in various kinds with jumbo lump crab being the most expensive. That kind of crab isn’t needed for this dish. Get a good middle-of-the-road crab, I used claw meat.
  • If you’re using canned crab, drain it well, even squeeze out the excess water or your dip could be soggy.
  • Pick through the crab carefully before using, looking for bits of shell. Remove these.
  • Soften the cream cheese before using. It’ll be much easier to blend if it’s softened.
  • Add more Sriracha if you like it spicy, but don’t overdo it!
  • White cheddar is best with this dip. You could also use pepper jack, Monterey jack, or your favorite cheese. Straight Parmesan would probably be too strong.

What To Serve with Keto Crab Rangoon Dip

All you need for this keto friendly crab dip is a spoon! Just kidding – sort of! I’ve been known to eat this yummy dip by the spoonful, but if you’re more polite, grab your favorite keto crackers, celery, or other dippables and get dipping!

Where To Serve This Keto Crab Rangoon Dip REcipe

This is a tasty dip that’s perfect for sharing. Game day events, movie nights, family gatherings and more are all better with this tasty dip, and the best part is that everyone loves it, not just those doing keto!

It’s also a great keto potluck recipe – make it right up to the point of popping it in the oven. Transport it, and bake just before serving!

Is This Keto Seafood Dip Freezable?

Yes! Back when I owned my retail shop, we sold oodles and oodles of this frozen.

It is best frozen from the unbaked state. Package it in an airtight freezer-safe container. It’s handy to have one that can go from the freezer to the oven. You can freeze it for up to three months.

To reheat it, simply pop it into a 350-F oven and bake it for 20-30 minutes or until it is hot and bubbly. Reheating time will depend on the size and depth of the container, so keep an eye on it.

  2. Great Recipe! is 3 gm. total carbohydrates? I ask because you state that net carbs are 3 gm. Normally the total carbs and the net carbs contradict. Please check the statistics. Thank you.

    • Great question! There are 3 grams of carbs in one serving of this recipe, 0 grams of fiber and 0 sugar alcohols. So, there are in fact, 3 net grams of carbs (total carbs-fiber-sugar alochol=net carbs).

  3. Just make sure you’re not serving it to anyone that’s celiac! Imitation crab isn’t gluten free so it wouldn’t be safe for them to eat.
