A Hawaii Favorite: Kamaboko Crab Dip

If you love seafood, you'll absolutely love this recipe.  It's a classic recipe from Hawaii, one that is perfect for any party. 

I found the original recipe in "Hawaii's Best - Quick and Easy Recipes "  by author Jean Hee.  It's a popular dip in Hawaii and one hard to resist. 

I will begin to feature more recipes from Hawaii, which I made a folder for under "Hawaii Food Favorites."  I hope you enjoy it.

Kamaboko and Crab Dip

1 (6 oz) Kamaboko (fish cake)
1 (8 oz) package of imitation crab meat
3 green onion, chopped
1/2 cup mayonaise
1/2 cup sour cream

1. Chop the kamaboko (fish cake) and imitation crab meat.  Then, combine with green onions,   mayonaise, and sour cream.

2. Mix ingredients together

3. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Personally, I prefer less of a creamy texture, so I reduced the amount of mayonaise and sour cream by 1/2 cup.  Next time, I'll add only 1/4 a cup.  It's still creamy and tasty, but with less fat.  I also increased the amount of green onions.  I'd recommend shredding, then cutting the crab into smaller pieces.  It will make it easier to eat.

I love kamaboko and crab dip! I know you will too.
