Surimi is a product made from Alaska pollock that resembles crab in texture, appearance and flavor and is a lot cheaper.

Oh I like cracking crab, might take 30 minutes but boy it's good. My friend makes a seafood salad with two of them that is to die for. Throw out the weight watchers for the night.

I just object to the way that they are cooked, so I don't eat it.

I cannot eat any type of shellfish as it brings me out in Hives. That is large red and purple blotches at all my joints. I inherited the condition from my mother.

These food fanatics who think that lobster should cooked from live should be dunked into a bath of cold water, then slowly boiled to death.
