Spicy Crab Dip made with Award Winning OSA Gourmet Datil Zest, Snake Bite Datil Pepper Hot Sauce and Fountain of Youth Datil Marinade is a Fresh From Florida treat that’s an easy yet elegant appetizer, perfect for any gathering. It pairs just as well with champagne as it does with an ice cold beer or soda.
Here in Florida, we have an abundance of fresh fish and seafood. What better way to showcase the versatility of crabmeat, than a quick and easy dip or spread made with OSA Gourmet Datil Pepper Products for that spicy touch.
Fresh crabs are only available for a short time each year, and although they’re amazingly delicious when they’re fresh off the boat, picking through all those shells to get at the succulent, juicy meat is a lot of work. Here I’ve used wild caught crabmeat that’s already been shelled, picked through and packaged for convenience. Please be sure you double check the crabmeat, however, as little pieces of shell do sometimes make it through the process. Your guests will appreciate not chomping down on a shell or breaking a tooth while trying to scrape the last little bits of dip out of the bowl.
Buy the best quality crabmeat you can get. It’s expensive, so you probably won’t make this recipe all the time, but occasionally you have to go all out for family and friends. They’re worth it and so are you.
I doctored-up a recipe posted by a friend on Facebook. Thanks for the idea, Tami Hall-Hubbard! You’re an inspiration, losing over 100 pounds and getting into great shape has been an adventure I know you are proud of and gladly share with others to help them realize their dreams of being the best person they can be. Please keep sharing those wonderful diet-worthy recipes.
By doctored-up, of course I mean that I substituted my OSA Gourmet Datil Pepper products for some of the ingredients in the original recipe. Fountain of Youth Datil Marinade in place of Worcestershire sauce, Snake Bite Datil Pepper Hot Sauce for your average off the grocery store shelf hot sauce, and Datil Zest Fresh From Florida Orange, Lemon, Lime and Datil Pepper Seasoning Blend for the Old Bay.
OSA Gourmet Datil Pepper products fit perfectly into a healthy diet plan as they’re all-natural, low in calories, low in sodium compared with a lot of other products on the market, and loaded with spicy datil pepper deliciousness. By using light cream cheese, light mayo and reduced-fat Parmesan cheese, you can cut the calories substantially while not losing anything in flavor.
If you’ve never had a datil pepper, you don’t know what you’re missing. They’re St. Augustine’s own little golden gem. Fruity but spicy, they bring out the flavor in almost any dish you add them to. They’re about the same heat level as a habanero, but with a much more well-rounded flavor.
Seafood loves the datil pepper. Not to say this dip wouldn’t be good without it, but why compromise flavor when you can take it up a notch by adding datils. When you layer the flavors in a dish, and do it well, you take something ordinary and make it extraordinary. I’ve taken the guesswork out of combining those flavors, so all you have to do is add a little, or a lot of one or more of these amazing OSA Gourmet products to elevate your dish to culinary masterpiece status. The products are designed to work well together, so you almost can’t go wrong. Here’s a little background on the products I used in this gourmet crab dip.
