Spicy Harissa Crab Dip

Looking for a low fat, low carb, high-protein snack? Head to your fish counter and give our Spicy Harissa Crab Dip a go! We kicked up the usual cold crab dip by adding a generous spoonful of harissa, a Tunisian roasted red chili paste that’s packed with garlic, spices, and herbs. A game-changer of a condiment, harissa is typically found in cans or tubes in the international foods section of your grocery store. If you can’t find it, no worries. A dash of sriracha will work too!


  1. In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, greek yogurt, and lemon juice until smooth. (A whisk or electric mixer is fastest and easiest, but a spoon will work too.)
  2. Add all the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  3. Serve with celery sticks, sliced peppers, or crackers.
