Tuna and Crab Spiralen Pasta

Surimi; is a Japanese loan word referring to a food product intended to mimic a lobster, crab, and other shellfish meat. It is typically made from white-fleshed fish, (such as pollock or hake), that has been pulverized to a paste and attains a rubbery texture when cooked. The term is also commonly applied to food products made from lean meat in a similar process.

Surimi is a much-enjoyed food product in many Asian cultures and is available in many shapes, forms, and textures. The most common surimi product in the Western market is crab legs. Such a product is often sold as sea legs and krab in America, or seafood sticks, crab sticks and fish sticks in the UK, or seafood extender in Australia.

Its given that I like (crab) surimi however they are served. The above photo's recipe was supposed to be tuna only but I can't help putting them on top since they are both flavors of the sea, I just thought maybe they might complement well, and was I glad they did. Although I imagined fresh tuna would have been better. =P
It was also a quick dish, good for kids who love to eat but do not have the patience to wait! lol.

This is similar to tuna casserole although yours has the sauceadded on top. I like the idea of surimi and spiral noodles.
