Imitation crab (surimi) is the base ingredient of deli-style seafood salad. It can be found in the fresh or frozen seafood section of your market. Making your own imitation crab seafood salad is less expensive than deli-prepared, and allows you to adjust the add-ins and flavors to your preference. Use imitation crab seafood salad mixture as a topper to a bed of salad greens, as a sandwich spread, a chunky dip, or as an appetizer cracker topping. Following is a starter recipe which you can tweak to your seafood heart’s delight!
