    What is Imitation Crab Sticks?

    The imitation crab sticks, or we call Kanikama (カニカマ) in Japanese, are a type of seafood made of starch and finely pureed white fish that has been shaped and cured to resemble the leg meat of snow crab or Japanese spider crab. It is a product that uses fish meat to imitate shellfish meat.

    Where to Buy

    The imitation crab sticks made by a Japanese brand are thinner than other brands and they are shred into thin pieces very easily. It tastes better and looks prettier in my opinion, so I usually get them at a Japanese grocery store.
