Surimi seafood is a product made from Alaska pollock, which has been processed into several different forms and flavored with crab, shrimp, scallops, and lobster. It is generally referred to as imitation crab and can be found in sticks as whole crab legs, pieces, chunks, flakes, and shredded. The imitation seafood, such as imitation crab, imitation shrimp and imitation lobster, is made from Alaska pollock fillets that are chopped up finely and blended together with crab, shrimp, or lobster to achieve the appropriate flavor. It also contains other ingredients, such as egg white, starch, and salt. These ingredients are all processed into a paste that is formed into a solid block and then cooked. Surimi is the paste used to make these products. The cooked product is then cut into its various shapes. This imitation seafood can be eaten cold or it can be heated. It does not have to cook for any length of time because it is precooked. Heat it only long enough to get it to the desired temperature for consuming. The imitation seafood should be stored in the refrigerator.
