Crab Dip

I got this recipe from my friend Tina... and boy am I glad that I made is so yummy.... I as usual put my own little spin on it.  Another friend of mine's mom makes a delicious shrimp dip which is very similiar to this.  She puts mayo in it instead of cream cheese and it is just awesome.  Tina's recipe didn't call for the finely chopped celery & onion, but I added that and it was delicious.  I also added a dash of cayenne pepper to jazz it up, and next time I am thinking I will add a couple of dashes of hot sauce.  YUMMY... I used fresh lump crabmeat, and Tina used imitiation crab.  Both will work fine, you can also use canned crab or shrimp, drained well in place of the crab. 

I served this with crackers, however crusty bread or veggie dippers would be equally delicious. Enjoy :)
