Crab Dip

by - January 21, 2013


I present to you my favorite dip : crab dip( Lon Poo). It is made with crab meat, coconut milk and spiced up with long fed chili peppers. The saltiness of crab meat enhances the richness of coconut milk. The long fed chili peppers sneak up on you, hitting your taste buds when you least expect it, sending some heat to your palate. You gonna love it. 

Coconut milk is delicious rich creamy food filled with minerals. I rarely go a day without having it....just love it.  We all have our guilty pleasure(s). So coconut milk and crab, how good is it? 

This crab dip is so easy to make. You just have all the ingredient ready and cook them all in one pot. Easy. Breezy.  Serve this dip with some fresh or boiled greens and steamed rice.
