My children are 1/2 Tongan and love crab. I needed to come up with something they would enjoy on our Buffet table on Holidays, our pic-nics, etc. This is it; and both they, all of our extended family and friends love it too. I have been asked numerous times for this recipe (even by the Tongan half of my family!)
1Prepare seafood, onions and cheese. If seafood is frozen, defrost by putting to soak (completely immersed) in a sink full of cold water until it is defrosted.
2Mix cream cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise together with a mixer, until very smooth with no lumps. Add sugar,and garlic; beat well until dissolved. Add onions and cheddar cheese. Mix well. Salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until cold (at least a couple of hours) before serving. Store in the refrigerator.
3Wonderful served on french baguette slices, crackers, canapes,hard rolls or on a bed of lettuce.
