Missing your sushi? This Crab Salad Sushi allows you to enjoy Sushi, without a ton of carbs. For this Crab Salad Sushi, we used imitation crab. Although people look down on imitation crab, it is a delicious ingredient. Essentially it's made from surimi or white fish such as pollock. The fish is shredded to remove any impurities and heated and pressed into crab-leg shapes. As a result, you have imitation crab that closely resembles real crab's color and texture. 

This Crab Salad Sushi is incredibly simple and irresistible. First, a mayonnaise lemon dressing is mixed; then, imitation crab is tossed until every morsel is coated with yummy sauce. Since we are serving this crab salad sushi appetizer style, we decided to add it to cucumber rounds to provide a delicious, refreshing bite.

What Kind Of Crab Is Used In Sushi?

Most often, restaurants use imitation crab to make sushi. If you want to elevate your sushi, you can use king crab or dungeness crab.   

Is Imitation Crab Salad Healthy?

Whether crab salad is healthy depends on the ingredients used to make it. In general imitation carb is low-fat and low-calorie. Low-fat and low-calorie foods can help protect against chronic illnesses such as diabetes. Therefore, it is a great addition to your diet if you are trying to shed a few pounds. In addition to this, you should use mayonnaise with a low amount of sugar and carbs, such as avocado mayonnaise.   

Can Imitation Crab Be Frozen?

Technically, imitation crab can be frozen. It is usually sold frozen. However, you should not thaw imitation crab and refreeze it. If it is unopened, simply place your imitation crab meat into the freezer. If your imitation crab meat is opened, place it into a Ziploc bag before storing it in the freezer.
