When it comes to crab salad, what you want most is that fresh taste from the sea. Crab has a slight sweetness to it, like many kinds of seafood. For those who cannot eat the real thing, imitation crab is the next best thing. Made from white fish like pollock, imitation crab can be flaked to resemble bits of real crab. It also holds up well when you want to make a crab salad sandwich. While real crab may be a little delicate to put between bread, imitation crab can hold its own.

Unlike many seafood salads that add in a lot of other ingredients, ours is mostly seafood. The scallions and celery in our recipe just add a little crunch for interest. The star is the seafood! Once you try this delicious crab salad sandwich, you will wonder why you never tried one before. Do not be surprised if it becomes one of your favorite lunches. Besides making a great lunch, you could also eat it for a light supper, especially with a cup of delicious clam chowder. Leftovers could be used as a mid-afternoon snack. You can eat this sandwich on its own or pair it up with a small green salad or cup of soup, like the aforementioned chowder. You will find you gain a whole new respect for imitation crab once you try this sandwich.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
