Mom's Seafood Dip Recipe

Pollack Seafood Dip Recipe

This great recipe I got from my mom, she is a fantastic cook and baker. We will no doubt have lots of her recipes in my blog.

This recipe can be used with different kinds of seafood like cooked shrimp, crab or lobster.

For parties, I use Alaskan Pollack, also referred to as "imitation crab meat" for the simple reason that some people are allergic to shell fish.

Alaskan Pollack (which is actually a cod species) is mostly caught up in the Bering Sea.

They can grow up to 1 meter in length and weigh in at over 20 kg. The meat is white and very tasty.

For this recipe, mince the celery very fine.

Now back to the recipe, it is very easy to make and can be made one day ahead of the party. The main thing and most important is that all the ingredients should be chopped very, very fine, almost minced.

OK, here are the ingredients:
  • 5 sticks of celery
  • 4 green onions
  • 1 (approx 300 g) Imitation Crab Meat (Alaskan Pollack)
  • ¾ Cup of Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip. This is very personal, it should be creamy but not to much.

First run your potato peeler down the outside of the celery and get rid of some of the stringy stuff.

Chop the celery, green onion and the pollack very fine.

I can not emphasis how important this is. If it is not very finely cut, it just does not have the flavour.

My mom actually uses only 2-3 sticks of celery but I have found that 5 gives it a much more refreshing taste.... just my opinion. Sorry Mom

Mix in the Miracle Whip (that's what mom uses) or mayonnaise (that's what I prefer) and stir.

Taste, and if you prefer you can add a bit of salt, pepper, and paprika.

Let sit at least a few hours or over night in the fridge.

Serve with toasted slices of baguette or crackers.


Wine Pairing and Recommendations:


Well, with a dip like this you can go with just about anything that your heart desires. A local bottle of Pinot Grigio from Cherry Point Vineyard will be just fine

Kiss the Cook,
