So, what is imitation crab?

Imitation crab, also known as crab stick, is a popular seafood ingredient commonly used in sushi, salads, and sandwiches. Made from surimi, a processed fish paste, imitation crab is designed to imitate the texture and flavor of crab meat. It is usually shaped into a stick or shredded pieces and has a slightly sweet and salty taste with a mild seafood flavor. Imitation crab is a convenient and affordable substitute for real crab meat, and it is a good source of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and other essential nutrients. However, it is not suitable for people with fish allergies and may contain additives and preservatives.
