Note

Imitation crab meat is a processed food. It’s Alaskan Pollok fish that’s been pulverized and reshaped into meat resembling crab claws. It’s not as rich in protein and nutrients as most fish, crab, or lobster. So, nutritionally, the real thing is best. But on treat day, if imitation crab meat is your jam and better fits your pocket book, happily indulge.
