Imitation Crab Salad Recipe

Imitation Crab Salad Recipe

This is simply the best imitation crab salad you will ever make! We eat it as our lunch or as a side at dinner. We have served it to friends and relatives, and the response has been a universal “this is great!”. Hubby has refined the recipe to the point that he is happy with it. This is one of my very favorites of his recipes. I hope you enjoy this imitation crab salad recipe too.


If you are wondering what my favorite “Hubby recipe” is, it is this outstanding Chicken Salad Recipe. In my opinion, it is his best recipe ever, and that is really saying something!!

Notes:

• The recipe below uses 1/2 cup of mayo with 1 pound of shredded imitation crab salad. After a lot of experimenting, Hubby has decided that shredding (on a grater) is the way to go when making this salad. It is easier than chopping.

• If you chop your imitation crab (which we have done in the past on this recipe), you may want to cut down the mayonnaise to 1/3 of a cup. When you chop the imitation crab cut it, then cut it again.

• In the same vein, if you like a “wetter” salad, simply add more mayonnaise than required in this recipe.

• You could use real crab in the recipe. However real crab is not sweet like artificial crab is. Keep that in mine.

• Look for made in the USA imitation crab (we found it at PriceRite and WalMart).

Imitation Crab Salad Ingredients:

• 1lb Imitation Crab Meat, shredded
• ¼ cup Celery
• 3 Green Onions (scallions)
• 1 tsp Old Bay
• 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
• ½ cup Mayonnaise
• ¼ cup Sour Cream
• 2 TBSP Tartar Sauce
• 1½ tsp Horseradish Sauce
• 1 tsp Mrs. Dash
• 4 dashes Hot Sauce
• 1 pinch Garlic Powder
• ¼ tsp Black Pepper

Imitation Crab Salad Mise en Place:

• Cutting Board
• Knife
Grater
• Large Bowl
• Medium Bowl
• Spatula
Measuring Cup
Measuring Spoons

Nail Polish Painted Glasses DIY Directions:

• Clean the glasses being used in this craft with soap and hot water. Make certain they are completely dry and lint free before starting.
• Fill the bowl with water.
• Drop a few drops of nail polish onto the surface of the water. Use whatever color combination you like. This tutorial uses blue, orange, yellow, and pink.
• Jiggle the bowl a tiny bit to force the nail polish design to spread. If you like, you can use a toothpick and draw across the surface of the nail polish to make intricate designs.

• Once you are happy with the design in the bowl, slowly lower a glass bottom side down into the bowl of water. You do not want to hit the design straight on as it will create an air pocket that will mess up your design. It is best to lower one edge down, and then slowly straighten the glass out over the surface of the water to prevent air bubbles from getting trapped inside the design.
• Pull the glass out of the water slowly. Flip it upside down.

• If you are not happy with the design, just wipe it away with nail polish remover and start over.

• Keep the glasses bottom side up until they are completely dry. This can take an hour or more, depending on how humid it is in the room. You do not want to wipe the glasses dry as touching them before the nail polish is dry and set it will mess up the design.
• Once the designs are fully dry, apply a coat of waterproof sealer over the designs using a paint brush to apply.

• After you apply the waterproof sealer the design is locked in and you should be able to wash the glasses on the top rack of the dishwasher. Eventually, with prolonged dishwasher cleanings the design will come off a bit, so if you really want to keep the design intact, hand wash the glasses as the design should last longer.
