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.
