Less nutritional?[edit]

"Highly processed and therefore less nutritious" ??? Even if there's a strong correlation between processing food and lower nutritional content, it doesn't mean that washing and shaping fish is going to change the fact that it's fish. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 75.72.21.221 (talkcontribs) 03:59, 26 May 2007 (UTC).


Is this actually related to Japanese cuisine? I'd wager that imitation crab is a Western innovation. --Col.clawhammer 05:57, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

"Crab-flavoured sticks"[edit]

"Contrary to popular belief, crab sticks do not actually contain any crab, and since 1993 manufacturers have been legally obliged to label them "crab flavoured sticks"." - This is almost a direct quote from I'm Alan Partridge, episode 1, series 1! Technostalgia (talk) 18:43, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

POV[edit]

Why is there a US Worldview tag when the article contains this: Individual pieces are shaped into oblong sticks, dyed red, and cooked. As they do not contain any crab, manufacturers have been legally obliged since 1993 to label them "crab flavoured sticks".[1] Who's legal system?(rhetorical question) FancyPants (talk) 05:11, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

It's a quote from the show I'm Alan Partridge! That's how I ended up on this page, anyway. ~ —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.91.6.139 (talk) 19:35, 14 August 2009 (UTC)


MERGE[edit]

Merge suggestion:

Shouldn't this be merged with the section on "Kamaboko"? It is a type of Kamaboko...

Uses in cuisine[edit]

American Sardine Bar's Krab Cakes are not an exceptional use of this ingredient. This para adds little to this page and should be considered a candidate for removal. Various web sources suggest the American Sardine Bar is yet to open which makes justification for keeping this page even more scant. — Preceding unsigned comment added by PaulVonPaul (talkcontribs) 13:12, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Moved from article; Wikipedia's not a news site[edit]

Krab Cakes are a specialty of the American Sardine Bar in Philadelphia's Point Breeze neighborhood. The krab cakes are prepared from locally sourced, freshly thawed crab sticks and served with dill pickle tartar sauce. Asked why a Philadelphia restaurant would serve krab, Chef Schroeder explained, "I'm from Detroit." Update: Though open less than a week, the American Sardine Bar is already embroiled in a minor scandal concerning its use of Krab. A disgruntled employee alleges that Chef Schroeder has, on more than one occasion, substituted Chesapeake Bay blue crab meat for authentic Krab. The Asian Krab Kouncil is investigating this incident, suspecting a flagrant violation of its revered trademark.

Once this is properly rewritten it can go back in, if it's not a parody. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.232.65.16 (talk) 00:43, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

Mercury content? and recipe[edit]

Does anyone have any information on the relative mercury content of imitation crab as compared to natural fish? I've found myself regularly eating a great breakfast I've invented - a hot burrito of one fried egg, crab sticks, and Swiss cheese with garlic powder and black pepper. It's really great - try it! But I am wondering if eating this everyday will build up mercury in my system....Any opinions? Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Numuse37 Numuse37 (talk) 17:02, 12 March 2012 (UTC)(talkcontribs) 15:07, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

California Roll[edit]

"A California roll is a sushi roll made with imitation crab meat, avocado, and cucumber (sometimes) rolled with sesame seeds on the outside." Is it? Technically, you can replace crab with imitation crab in anything that contains crab. Sure, according to the article on California roll, it can have either, but the source used doesn't back that up, it seems to have just been "included". Unless someone objects, I'm going to change this to "A California roll can be made with..." instead, and remove the reference from the other article, as it is misleading...Sheriffjt (talk) 02:09, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
