Default Surimi/Imitation Crab: Ideas?

I bought too much of this because it was on sale.

I made a crab salad with a base of Greek yogurt mixed with wasabi and light soy. That was good!

But now I still have 2 lbs of fake crab left.

Please -- if you have ideas -- share them!

I put it in pasta sauce. I just throw it in, it "uncurls" a bit. It's very tasty!

It freezes fine for another day.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?

You can throw it in soups also for a nice seafood flavor. Great in omlets too. or you can use it like a can of tuna and make a spread or "salad" and use in a wrap or between slices of bread.
*insert awesome signature here*

Omlettes or fritattas definitely.

I have put it in pasta before - used to use it with alfredo sauce, but that's not quite diet-friendly these days, so maybe a spicy marinara?

Or a cold pasta salad - I'm thinking off the top of my head: whole wheat rotini, surimi, broccoli, celery, mushrooms, and some light creamy italian dressing?

Put it in a cobb-style salad; greens, avocado, surimi, tomatoes, boiled eggs.

You could make soup - a "crab" and corn bisque type of thing with skim milk, carrots, onions, celery, corn.

Or, as someone else suggested - freeze it for next time!

I cut it into smallish pieces and add itt to salads - basically, any type of salad that would tolerate hard-boiled eggs as an addition (particularly to fish salads). Because of my plan, which is high on protein, I add cut surimi to my egg-white omelettes. Also because of the plan, as I can't have rice, I use a surimi-and eggwhite mixture (microwaved) for the sushi. Devilled eggs - mix the yolks, surimi, a touch of mustard (especially the retro version with seeds etc), any spice you like for a healthy and attractive party snack, or as a treat.
P.S. Oh dear lol - I just noticed the date of the original posting! You must have eaten the crab supply by now! Anyways, great idea about the yoghurt plus wassabi salad, thanks!

I use it in stir fries too. Lots of veggies (peppers, zucchini, onion, mushrooms) cooked in a little oliver oil and served on brown rice.
