Easy Seafood Cracker Spread
The other day when out shopping, we stopped at one of our favorite seafood restaurants for a nice dinner before heading home. Upon bringing our cold brews to quench our thirst, she also brought a plate of crackers and a spread to top them with which we never had been given there before. Of course I had to ask what it was and she told me it was a fish spread. Next question was what was in it, expecting the answer to be “Well I can’t give out the the ingredients” she surprised me by telling us exactly what was in it. I told her about our site and that I wanted to try to copy it at home so I could share it with you because it was so tasty. The restaurants version had two different kinds of fish in it and not having any on hand, I made my version with some crab meat I had tucked in my freezer. We told her how much we enjoyed it and when we asked for the tab, she surprised us again by bring us a take-out container with 2 more cups of the spread along with extra crackers. First time we ever had a waitress tip us and it was happily taken home for another treat! Gotta love it!!!!
- 4 oz cream cheese, softened
- ¼ cup cooked fish, shrimp or crab meat, minced
- ½ teas Old Bay Seasoning (more or less to taste)
- Crackers or even celery and carrot sticks
- Combine the softened cream cheese with the seasoning and seafood of your choice.
Great for those football parties with some nice cold brew to wash them down. This dip should not be kept too long in the frig, so only make what you think you can eat within a day or two. Enjoy…… It’s OBIF!
