Lobster Dip

Posted by Denise on June 24, 2012

These tasty little bites are full of flavor. Sweet lobster and onion combine with the pleasant crunch of slivered almonds and salty cracker to make a delicious mouthful on each cracker.

 

Lobster Dip is perfect as an appetizer for a special dinner or as a party dip. Or if you feel like splurging a little. Lobster is expensive, but fortunately, this dip doesn’t take too much of the meat to make a really good dip…half of a small lobster tail. Doesn’t the cook get to eat the other half while making the dip? J

If you have a food processor or are fast with a knife (I’m not so I have my trusty food processor), this recipe takes about 10 minutes tops to throw together if the lobster is already cooked, then it goes in the oven for 15-20 minutes. It is quick to pull together and have ready when you have guests coming over soon.

Ingredients

 

½

pound lobster meat, cooked

1

8 ounce package cream cheese, softened

2

tablespoons sour cream

1

small onion, minced

¼

cup slivered almonds

2

dashes Worcestershire sauce

 

salt and pepper to taste

 

Crackers for eating the dip, your choice, we used Ritz originals

 

Instructions

 

1.     Preheat oven to 375o F. If lobster tail is not cooked, place a steamer pan over a pot of boiling water and steam until it doesn’t look transparent anymore and the shell turns red, about 5 minutes depending on size of lobster tail.

2.    While lobster is cooking, clean a small onion and mince in food processor. My small food processor was too small to fit everything in, so I put the onion in a bowl when it was chopped into small pieces. 

3.    When lobster is cooked, let it cool, then take the meat out of the shell by dividing the tail with a knife down the length and pulling the two halves apart. Place the lobster meat in the food processor and pulse until lobster is chopped into small pieces.

5.     Sprinkle top with slivered almonds. Place dip in baking dish in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes until it is heated through. When the almonds are getting slightly browned and toasted, remove the dish from the oven. Serve on crackers while warm.

Ready for oven
