Question Question about imitation crab meat

Is imitation crab meat cooked already? Can I use it without cooking it?

Thanks

It makes a decent "crab" salad sandwich. Just shred it or break it up and go from there.

I love shredded imitation crab on radish sprouts (or other bitter sprouts) and tossed with a little Japanese mayonnaise. It's called Kani Kaiware and is a popular Japanese salad.

Have you read what's in it and how they make it? Are you sure you want to eat that?

Not trying to be contrary, just wonder whether folks know that it is really made with inferior quality fish and all sorts of artificial flavors and colors. There really are lots of better (and tastier, imho) alternatives to surimi. That's its real name. Surimi.

There are all different types if surimi, not just fake crab. I am not sure where you got your information that surimi is inferior quality fish. There is nothing wrong with the fish used to make it.

The father of an old friend of mine is the man responsible for surimi being in the US. It was the company he owned that was the first to import surami to the US.

Sorry. That doesn't make it healthy food.
