I made shinjo (a kind of dumpling or patty) using imitation crab! The imitation crab meat tastes like the real thing and makes for a luxurious soup! The imitation crab effectively infuses the soup with umami!
Shrimp dumplings made with imitation crab meat.
These fish cakes fall apart easily, so patiently heat until cooked through. The hanpen and crab meat creates a fluffy texture. Since the crab meat is already seasoned, it's delicious as is.Half of the imitation crab meat is used for the fish cakes, and the other half for decoration at the end, resulting in a delicious and beautiful dish!
