What is Imitation Crab Meat

You may not be aware of it completely, but you have had imitation crab meat before. No? Crab cakes? Seafood salad at your favorite restaurant! Doesn’t it ring a bell? I know, right! Imitation crab meat is made from deboned fish meat, which is predominantly used in crab cakes, sushi rolls, etc. Imitation crab does not contain any crab meat in them since it is made out of the flesh of fish. They might add in some crab flavor to simulate and mimic real crab meat. You can make your favorite crab cakes with imitation crab meat and have it with the main course meal of Cumin-infused pan-seared chicken.

Canned Crab Meat

Having some guests over at your place for dinner, and you’re looking for the right appetizer to impress them? All you need is a can of crab meat, and you are totally prepared to pin them down with your sway-away crab cakes. Crab cakes are very easy to make, and it doesn’t soak up too much of your time, so you will have time to prepare a salad like purple cabbage salad & roasted tomatoes along with the main course.

Who said you should curtail crab recipes to only crab cakes and seafood salad? Go the extra mile and make a seafood pizza with crab meat. If you are not a fan of crab, then I would recommend the vegan style Breakfast spinach Pizza, loaded with nutrients and vitamins, the best way to kick start your day. You can also go crazy and try crab stuffed dumplings that taste like your favorite seafood place dumplings.

It is always nice to have your main dish with a side of Campari tomato-onion olive salad to get a balanced diet. It is always better to buy fresh crab meat than canned meat since the fresh meat will give a juicy and tender texture to the meat.
