I have such a soft spot for crab rangoon – those gorgeous deep fried won ton parcels filled with crab and cream cheese that are so popular in American-Asian restaurants. I've been wanting to make a low carb version for ages, and the key was changing it from parcels, to a dip. Also I switched the traditional imitation crab sticks to canned white crab meat. Imitation crab contains no crab, but is made from ground fish, starch, and other additives, meaning that 3 ounces of fake crab can contain 8-13g net carbs!
This dip is super popular with everyone, whether they are following a low carb diet or not!

How to Make a Low Carb Crab Rangoon Dip
In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, drained canned crab meat, sour cream, shredded mozzarella cheese, garlic paste, finely chopped green onions, and Worcestershire sauce.
Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper as necessary. You might even like to add a little hot sauce like I did!
Transfer the mixture to a small baking dish and bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes. It will be all warm and bubbly, and smell sooooo good.
Serve this keto crab dip with homemade tortillas chips (just put them into the oven on a baking sheet for the last 5 minutes of the dip's cooking time), celery sticks, cucumber sticks or flaxseed crackers!
NOTE: the round crackers shown in the video and photos are NOT low carb.
