Creamy Crab Dip

1 lb. fresh, frozen or canned crab meat
8 oz. sour cream
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 C. celery, finely minced
1/4 C. sweet onion, finely minced
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. dried dill
1/2 tsp. Tabasco
1 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley (more for garnish, if desired)
pinch salt
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Paprika (for garnish)

Combine sour cream and cream cheese in a medium mixing bowl. With a handheld electric mixer, mix on medium-low speed, until fluffy and well-combined.

With a spatula or wooden spoon, stir in vegetables, lemon juice, dill, Tabasco, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste.

Gently stir or fold crab meat into the mixture.

Scoop into a serving bowl and refrigerate, covered, about an hour before serving (or more). Garnish with paprika and more parsley if desired. Serve cold.
