It’s typically white fish meat – often pollock or hake – ground and then mixed with starch, egg whites and flavorings, and then shaped it sticks. The final product is cooked and colored to resemble real crab meat.

It’s served in a lot of sushi restaurants because it really is that hard to tell from real crab. It’s nearly as good as the real thing, but at a much lower price.
