I've never seen Krab in the canned food section, I think that's usually the real thing. I've found it in the service seafood section sold by the pound, and also pre-packaged in shrink wrap in the self serve seafood section next to the smoked salmon.

I agree with Z, it's sweeter, and the texture is a little different, but works in a seafood salad mixed with mayo, onions, and celery, etc.

Yes, I get the shrink-wrap version. It's made from fish, so it's a good source of protein. I used to make a casserole with it a long time ago - can't remember the recipe now. But try adding a bit of hot sauce to the seafood salad to counter the sweetness. Yum!

Good idea, GG. A little sriracha, maybe? I'll try that next time!

I remember when the fake krab first came on the market, in the 80's as I recall. I made up a casserole recipe with it and it was published in one of those club cookbooks. I said "you can use the new fake krab available now". I haven't made it in years but I remember it being just delicious. Hmmm, I'm going to have to dig out that little cookbook.
