ahhhhh..it is like heaven in the mouth. Basicly it is surimi, garlic, and cream cheese all pocketed in wonton skin, pressed like a flower and deep fried. Served with a little sweet and sour sauce.

You can add jsut a touch of sugar to the cream cheese/garlic/surimi mixture before flding the won ton skin around it. That's how our local Chines Restaurant makes theirs, and it is so very good that I had to create a duplicate recipe at home. And Tatgrat is right. It is very good.

the Surimi people tout their product as "imitation crab," but if you ever tasted them side by side, you'd be surprised at how different they taste. I used to use it too, a long time ago, before I found out what they put into it... very cheap fish "pieces," corn syrup (the last package said "high fructose" to boot!) salt and artificial color.

I guess you've figured out by now that I'm one of those "natural foods" nuts... sorry if I hijacked your thread.

I have a reccomendation for your imatation crab...

Try putting it under your rose bushes, or gosh even stuffing it down the disposall would be good.

This must be a matter of personal opinion, but that stuff is considerably lacking in all crab-like attributes (trying to say that tactfully).
