Imitation Crab Salad

I love imitation crab…. keeping a Kosher kitchen i can not use real crab meat so this is a delicious alternative for us! This is so quick it is almost impossible to believe it can be as good as it is!!!

I love to make this salad, I use it as a dip or in a sandwich which i did this time. I also change it up a bit depending on how we want to eat it!

In this recipe I added diced celery & shredded carrots, but if you want to make this for a dip to serve with crackers I do not always add the vegetables so it is a smoother mixture. You could leave out the celery if you want, my friend Marcia is allergic to celery so I would leave it out for her!

It is a very flexible ‘recipe’… adapt it to your taste with add-ins or how to serve & enjoy it! It is delicious just with a spoon… so good!


2 celery stalks

2 medium size carrots

1 16 oz ( 454g) of Surimi seafood sticks or chunks

1/4 cup ketchup

3/4 cup mayonnaise


  1. Finely dice the celery & set aside
  2. Grate the carrots & you can add it to the celery
  3. using your food processor, put the seafood sticks in the bowl & pulse to finely chop the fish
  4. Put the fish into a large bowl
  5. Add the prepared vegetables, ketchup & mayonaise
  6. Mix well & that’s it!!!

Serve with any cracker as a dip or in a sandwich! I cut some crusty sub buns downtime middle & filled them with this delicious fish salad!

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
