Sealeg Salad (imitation crab meat)

This is actually a dairy-free recipe! I used canola-oil vegan mayo from Whole Foods.

10 seafood salad

Ingredients

  • 1 package of imitation crab meat (2.5 servings)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 2 small pickles, chopped (I used Chinese pickles)
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • other spices (chili powder, dried onion, whatever else you like)
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (vegan canola oil mayo)
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 2-3 tablespoons rice vinegar

Bobby liked his on fresh toasty bread; I liked mine plain. I think I had this with some roasted squash on the side.

I’ve been roasting squash a la Clare: cut up in pieces at 425F for 25 minutes. Here was delicata:

13 roasted delicata squash

And kabocha (duh):

14 roasted kabocha

I just sprinkle some salt, oregano/dill, and cinnamon on them. I’ve heard you can use stevia, but I’m not a fan. Squash is sweet enough. I like to top them with organic, fruit-sweetened (or unsweetened) ketchup. My recipe is here.

Now have a sweet weekend! What are your plans?

  1. Yay squash! 😀 I almost got some imitation crab meat the other day- purely because it’s pink. Haha. Wasn’t sure what to do with it, but your recipe looks great.

    Is kabocha hard to cut? I love butternut but it’s too tough for my knives.

    Weekend plans: relax!

  2. Looks delicious and I love the new layout. I’ve been on a rice vinegar kick so I’ll have to give this a try. 🙂

    @insideiamdancing- I haven’t done it, but I’ve heard that microwaving winter squash for a bit can soften up the skin for easier cutting. Might be worth checking out.

  3. You know, I used to eat a LOT of Imo Crab.

    I used to warm it and make butterd sammies out of it (late teens)

    I don’t even know WHAT it is, but I loved it!

    I love your new updates too! very light and fresh!

    Thanks for adding me to your blog roll!
    you’re the coolest!
    I’m off for some word LOVE!
    xo
    happy Friday

  4. Lovvvvving the new layout!!! 🙂

    I love imitation crab meat salads. Try adding frozen peas next time! They add a nice crisp sweet pop.

    I’ve never roasted my squash like that, I need to try it!

  5. I love imitation crab! It’s so good. Haha, that salad looks great.

    Its my cousin’s birthday tomorrow so I’m just going to spend the day with him. Hopefully I’ll get some shopping in on Sunday.

  6. Seriously… I need to get updated on kabocha… everyone’s blogging about it, but I have no idea what it is xD

    Looks good though…
    Lovin it xx

  7. I need to get some imitation crab meat too! I love those! 🙂
    yeah for kabocha! I’ll try with cinammon tonight!
    nice makeover of the blog! you need to teach me how to make it so pretty! 😉

  8. I don’t really like delicata. It can’t compare to kabocha imo, don’t you agree?
    But wow, way to go with the spices in that sealeg salad! 😀

  9. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I am very glad to see such magnificent information being shared freely out there.
