So, what is surimi?

Surimi is a versatile seafood product that was originally developed in Japan. It is made by grinding various types of white fish into a paste, which is then mixed with other ingredients such as starch, sugar, and egg whites to create a rubbery texture similar to crab meat. Surimi is commonly used in making imitation crab meat, but can also be used in salads, sushi rolls, and other dishes. With its mild flavor and low-fat content, surimi is a healthy and affordable alternative to real crab meat. Its unique texture and versatility make it a popular ingredient in Asian and Western cuisines alike.
