You Should Make Your Own Krab Crackers With Imitation Crab Sticks

I have always liked fake crab, the lunchmeat of the sea. I was introduced to it years before I had the real stuff, and I’ve always found it good in an uncanny valley sort of way. It’s sweet and savory, and does pretty well in a dip or seafood salad. Though it may seem like a processed, thoroughly modern food, surimi has been around for hundreds of years and was originally invented as a use for leftover fish (resourceful!). It’s also decently high in protein (two grams per ounce!), which I appreciate.
