Traditional Ceviche | Keto Blinis with Smoked Salmon Pate


I am a HUGE seafood lover!

I have told the Mr, on numerous occasions, that I could easily become a pescatarian if I needed to. I got the "look" from him when I said that.

The look that says "You will take my beef from me when you pry it out of my cold dead fingers" look.

Yes, I love my beef, but he loooooooooves his beef! If we don't have been, in some form, every week he gets all cranky pants on me.

But, I can tell you he never complains when I whip this recipe out.

One of the questions I get from a lot of readers is "Is seafood (crab, shrimp, etc) OK for the keto diet?"/ 

My answer is a resounding YES!

I can tell you that there is no diet in the world I could stick to if I couldn't have seafood!! Shellfish are great proteins for a low carb lifestyle. They are high in protein with minimal carbs. 

Some of the good things that shellfish has to offer are:


  • Crab: Crab meat is a great source of B12 and folate. In addition, it is high in minerals such as zinc, phosphorus, calcium, as well as potassium. One cup of crabmeat has 105 calories, 0.9 grams of fat, 23 grams of protein, and 0 grams of carbohydrates.
  • Shrimp: Shrimp is rich in B vitamins, Selenium and Zinc, it is also high in protein. One cup of shrimp meat has 173 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, 33 grams of protein, and 2.2 carbohydrates.
  • Lobster: When it comes to minerals, lobster contains both copper and selenium, as well as phosphorus, vitamin B12, zinc, magnesium, and vitamin E. It also contains small amounts of omega-3 fatty acids. One cup of lobster meat contains 129 calories, 1.25 grams of fat, 27.55 grams of protein, and 0 grams of carbohydrates.
So I am always happy to add a shellfish recipe to the menu.

I am currently addicted to Cajun Shrimp Ceasar Salad! 

I season up some shrimp with my Cajun Seasoning Blend, give them a quick cook, a couple minutes on each side in a medium-high heat skillet, and toss them into some chopped romaine with keto Ceasar dressing, Parmesan cheese, and some Parmesan crisps in place of croutons.

HEAVEN!!

HOW TO MAKE LOW CARB ARTICHOKE CRAB DIP


STEP 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

STEP 2

In a large mixing bowl, combine softened cream cheese, Greek yogurt, lemon juice, parsley, mustard, and Old Bay. Stir in the Parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese, and chopped artichoke hearts. Mix well.

STEP 3

Carefully fold in crab meat so as not to break the lumps up too much (can use your hands if needed). Pour mixture into lightly greased baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese.

STEP 4

Bake 20-25 minutes or until the top is golden brown and bubbling.

STEP 5

Sprinkle remaining parsley over the dip.

STEP 6
  
Serve with pork rinds, chicken rinds, Fat Snax keto crackers, Proudly Pure Keto Parmesan Cheese Crisps, bell pepper wedges, or celery.

FAQS ABOUT LOW CARB ARTICHOKE CRAB DIP


Can I use imitation crab in this dip? No, imitation crab is highly processed, has sugar and additives that aren't keto-friendly, and will not make your dip taste as fresh.

Can I use shrimp in this recipe? I have not tried it but would assume that it would work well in this recipe. I would just chop the shrimp into bite-sized pieces and add it in place of the lump crab meat.

How do I store the leftover Low Carb Artichoke Crab Dip? I would be amazed if you have leftovers but, in the case that you do, store the leftover dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 or 3 days. I would not recommend freezing this dip due to the high amount of dairy in it. It would probably have a grainy texture upon reheating.

Last thoughts about Low Carb Artichoke Crab Dip


This dip is my go-to dip when we are entertaining. Along with my Jalapeno Popper Deviled Eggs, Keto Blinis with Smoked Salmon Pate, and Traditional Ceviche, it is at the top of the list of most requested appetizers and goes SO fast! 

I usually make a double batch so I can make sure there is some leftover for me to eat when the crowd disburses! 

I like the fact that it really isn't a labor-intensive dish, but is super tasty. 

Who wants to spend time in the kitchen if it isn't going to result in flavor, right?

So tuck this recipe into your file of "Must Make" and whip it out the next time you are looking for a keto nibble for family game night, game day, or just hanging out with your sweetie.
