How do you cook frozen imitation crab meat?

Frozen imitation crab meat is a popular snack item that many people enjoy. However, if you are looking to serve it at a party, you need to know how to cook it properly. To begin, thaw the frozen imitation crab meat in the refrigerator overnight. Once it is completely thawed, remove from the package and place into a bowl. Next, pour 1/2 cup of milk over the top of the imitation crab meat. Let sit for 5 minutes, then drain off any liquid that remains.

What do you eat imitation crab with?

If you are looking for a great way to enjoy imitation crab meat, try making it yourself. It is very easy to make and tastes delicious! Start by soaking the crab legs overnight in cold water. Then drain and rinse well. Next, place the crab legs into a bowl filled with ice water. This will help to stop the crab from cooking. After about 20 minutes, remove the crab legs from the ice bath and pat dry with paper towels. Now, take a sharp knife and cut off the shell. Remove the claws and crack them open using a hammer. Crack the shells along the edge and pull apart. Once the crab legs are cracked open, discard the top shell and pick out any bits of cartilage. Cut the crab legs into bite sized pieces. In a medium saucepan, combine 2 cups of water, 1/2 cup of white vinegar, 1 tablespoon of salt, and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat. Add the crab legs and simmer for 15 minutes. Drain the crab legs and let cool completely. To serve, toss the crab legs in a bowl with the following ingredients: 1/4 cup of mayonnaise, 1/4 cup of sour cream, 1/4 cup chopped green onions, 1/4 cup minced parsley, 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, and 1/4 cup breadcrumbs. Mix together until combined. Serve chilled.
