Keto Crab Dip

This easy keto appetizer can be served either cold or warm and melty!

You'll find instructions for both in the recipe card below.

Before you head out to the store to grab some crab meat...

A few tips.

Avoid imitation crab.

If you take a look at the ingredients list on imitation crab you might just be surprised of what it's made of.

For those of us on a keto diet, let's just totally avoid that junk!

Instead, choose fresh crab and if you buy canned make sure you read the ingredients because sugar can be hiding in there!

A Versatile Keto Appetizer

This keto crab dip can be served chilled or hot and melty.

Either way, we love using pork rinds as a crunchy substitute for chips.

To make this dip warm and melty, simply bake it in a 300 degree oven for about 20 minutes.

We like to top this version with some freshly shredded mozzarella cheese.
