(4 servings)

  • 2 sticks of salted butter

  • ½ lemon squeezed
  • 4 cups of chicken broth
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 white onion
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon six pepper mix
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • ½ tablespoon Old Bay mix
  • 1 tablespoon oregano or marjoram (dried)


At first, it may seem incredible that you can make a restaurant-grade seafood sauce without any special equipment in the comfort of your own kitchen. However, this Juicy Crab Dip only requires 15 minutes of your time.

Juicy Crab Sauce adds a distinctive flavor to your favorite seafood dish, shrimp boil or crab boil, and enamors you with the complexity of the spices.

So let’s get cooking for you to experience this culinary paradise of juicy seafood sauce that tastes just like any Juicy Crab restaurant.

Step 1:

Put the onions, garlic and butter in a food processor and process together on low power and slow speed until smooth.

Step 2:

Heat them in a saucepan over medium heat. Then add seasonings and spices to the mixture.

Note: beware of the Old Bay. If you add too much, it can make the dish too saucey and acidic.

Lower the heat to simmer the sauce. Stir frequently, until the mixture begins to thicken and darkens a bit.

Step 3:

Add the chicken broth and continue to simmer. The broth will intensify the flavors and dilute the butter, to prevent the dish from being soggy. This helps bring together the spices and flavors of the sauce.

At this point, you can consider adding 1-2 tablespoons of Tabasco, but you’ll be perfectly fine without it.

Keep cooking for another 20-25 minutes until done.

Step 4:

Once cooked, drizzle it over seafood, or even cook meat or fish in it for the ultimate experience. It goes better with grilled seafood.
