Fried Crab Sticks

Fried Crab Sticks

When you want crab but can’t afford the genuine thing, these fried crab sticks will do. In the freezer area, look for “leg style” imitation crab. Imitation crab is naturally sweet, so I serve it with lemon wedges and cocktail sauce, but if you like it sweeter, dip it in sweet chili sauce.
