    OMG, I made this a few months ago and it was a big hit. This is very tasty and anybody who likes crab and smoked salmon separately will love them together in this recipe. Ever since I have added a few of my own ingredients to the recipe to enhance it further; thinly sliced green onions and dill. So far it has been a hit every time I make it.  -  17 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very easy to make. Just dump it all in the food processor and whir it up. I used 2 3-ounce packets of red salmon and 1 12 ounce package of imitation crab to make it a bit more affordable. I'm sure the version with the smoke salmon and real crab is delicious, but this less expensive version was really good too!  -  31 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This dip is fantastic! I prefer green onions, so I substitute those instead of the cooked onion. Other than that, it's wonderful as-is. I served it in a big sourdough breadbowl- big hit. Let the dip chill overnight for best flavor.  -  26 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
