18 servings (serving size: about 2 tablespoons spread and 2 bread slices)

This cold crab spread can be made up to a couple of days ahead. If you want to make the crostini ahead, let the slices cool completely on a wire rack, then place them in a zip-top plastic bag.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine the first 11 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring until well combined. Gently fold in crabmeat.

Step 2

Prepare broiler.

Step 3

Place bread slices in a single layer on a baking sheet. Brush 1 side of the bread slices evenly with the olive oil. Broil 1 minute or until lightly browned. Serve with spread.

Hot Sauce to use?

Can anyone tell me what you would recommend for the hot sauce in this recipe?  This sounds delicious!

This crab dip was delicious, the curry added an interesting twist to the standard crab dip. Super easy to make and this was completely gone by the end of the evening. I served the dish with assorted crackers, breads and crudite as part of a New Years Eve spread. I used a store bought curry powder for this dish but would like to change it up next time with a homemade curry powder. With crab meat being the star, I would only recommend this for a special occasion because you simply have to buy the best crab meat available.

Mine came out very watery. I used canned crab, but drained it well, I thought. The flavor was good. I'll try it again with fresh crab.

Excellent flavors, easy to make for our New Year's gathering. We used real crab meat instead of canned and served with a variety of crackers. May consider next time to use the dip as stuffing in little sandwiches. Will definitely use again.
