Imitation Crab Salad


Imitation crab meat is actually called Surimi. This is made from Pollock, Hake or some other white fleshed fish, and has a texture similar to flaked crabmeat and is artificially coloured and flavored. It’s well known in Asia and in Western countries are also called as sea legs or krab in America, seafood sticks, crab sticks, fish sticks or seafood extender.

Alaska Surimi Seafood is made from skinless, boneless Alaska Pollock fillets. The fish fillets are finely chopped and the surimi flakes are then blended with other ingredients such as starch, salt, natural crab meat and egg white.

This process yields a paste that is then formed, cooked and cut into the various cuts and styles you find available in your local grocery store's refrigerated case.

When purchasing Alaska Surimi Seafood, make sure the label says that it is made with Alaska Pollock. This ensures you are buying the highest-quality imitation crab product available.
