Expert Tips

Use shredded imitation crabmeat, also called surimi, if you don't have canned crabmeat on hand. Surimi is actually made from white-fleshed fish, like pollock or whiting, and can be found in the refrigerator or freezer section of your supermarket.

Spruce up this creamy dip with a sprinkle of toasted almonds. To toast almonds, heat a small skillet over medium heat. Add 3 tablespoons of sliced almonds, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until toasted. Sprinkle the toasted almonds over the dip just before serving.
