Tangy Crab Dip

Updated: Sep 8, 2021

I can remember having this delicious dip at every family party growing up. Unfortunately, Hoffman House Shrimp Sauce is no longer available, however, I have mastered a cocktail sauce recipe that is just as yummy for this soon to be favorite dip at all your gatherings.


  • 2C Ketchup

  • 3-4TBSP ground Horseradish (to your taste)

  • 2TBSP lemon juice

  • 1tsp Worcestershire sauce

  • ½tsp salt

  • ¼tsp black pepper

  • 16oz softened cream cheese

  • 2- drained 6oz cans of crabmeat (your choice).

  • Drizzle of love

Always have love in your heart when working in your kitchen.


  • Mix cream cheese, ketchup, horseradish, lemon juice, Worcestershire, salt & pepper until smooth.

  • Fold in drained crabmeat.

  • Chill for 3 hours before serving.


  • Serve with Ruffles Ripple Potatoe Chips or Triscuits.

  • The longer it sits the tastier it will become.

  • Store for up to a week in an air tight container in the refrigerator.

  • Salad shrimp can be used in place of crab.

  • Philadelphia cream cheese is always best but not necessary.

  • Omit cream cheese and crab for a great cocktail sauce.
