Fancy Clam Dip

recipe Detail


This classic white clam dip ⁠— filled with cream cheese, crème fraîche, and, of course, canned clams ⁠— is salty, cheesy, and craveable. Some generous splashes of hot sauce and plenty of fresh dill add brightness and cut through the rich, indulgent dip.


- 2 cans of minced clams

- 1 cup cream cheese

- 1/4 cup mayonnaise

- 1/4 cup sour cream

- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

- 1/4 cup chopped green onions

- 1 tablespoon olive oil

- 1 teaspoon garlic powder

- 1 teaspoon dried dill

- Salt and pepper to taste


1. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the minced clams (drained), cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, grated parmesan cheese, and chopped green onions. Mix well until all the ingredients are fully incorporated.

2. Add in the olive oil, garlic powder, dried dill, salt, and pepper. Mix again to evenly distribute the spices and seasoning.

3. Transfer the dip to a serving bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. Place it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.

4. Before serving, give the dip a quick stir and taste for seasoning. Add more salt and pepper if needed.

5. Serve the fancy clam dip chilled with your favorite crackers, bread, or vegetables for dipping. Enjoy!
