Ingredients

  • 8 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese (neufcatel), softened
  • 2/3 cup plain low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • 2 teaspoons old bay seasoning

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 4 cup baking dish or skillet with cooking spray.

Add in mayonnaise, sriracha, old bay seasoning, lemon zest and lemon juice. Stir to combine. Stir in scallions, crab meat and 2 tablespoons Parmesan. Transfer to the prepared baking dish. Top with the remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese.
