This quick and easy recipe spread cream cheese over a large plate, and tops it with cocktail sauce and your choice of crabmeat or shrimp. It's served as a spread for crackers.

  • Servings: 4-6


8 oz Cream Cheese, may use lite and/or spreadable
Shrimp Cocktail Sauce or Chili Sauce
½ – 1 cup Crab Meat, you may also use imitation crab meat or baby shrimp


On a nice plate with an edge, spread cream cheese over plate to cover it with about 1/4" of cream cheese. Pour and spread out Cocktail Sauce to cover.

Shred or chop Crabmeat over the entire thing. Chill. Serve with crackers.

Helpful Tips:

Serve with crackers. Can be made up ahead of time (and chilled) or spur of the moment. The number of servings can depend upon how big of a plate you use. I use a 10" plate for the 8 oz. of cream cheese.
