A big apology to my foodie followers but I like imitation crab. *GASP!* Yes, I admit it. I love the stuff. Yes I know it isn't even crab. Whatever. I like it and I eat it. And one of my favorite ways to eat it is in a Spicy Crab Roll. Oh my mouth waters just thinking about it and since I live about 2 hours from a legit sushi place, it is a huge luxury for me. So you also know, I plan on learning and mastering the Spicy Crab Roll very soon. Watch out! Back to my salad. I wanted to eat something low in carbs and high in protein but also high in flavor. I made my spicy crab mixture and put it on top of some chilled cucumbers that had been soaking in vinegar water. I think that instead of slices of cucumber, that I will do matchsticks next time. Overall I was pretty full, although I did go a little overboard on the Sriracha. :) Enjoy!
Spicy Crab and Cucumber Salad
1/2 Package of Imitation Crab (I prefer the sticks)
1 Tablespoons of Mayonaisse (DO NOT use Miracle Whip)
A couple squirts of Sriracha
1 Organic Cucumber
Chop your cucumber into slices or matchsticks and soak in vinegar and salt water, if desired.Cut your crab sticks into thirds and shred or chop finely. Add mayo and sriracha. Drain your cucumbers and pat dry. Top with crab mixture and enjoy!
I love cucumber
All sliced up. Next time I will do matchsticks.
The finished product. Delicious!
