Chinese Buffet Seafood Bake
Do you love Chinese Buffets? They serve up a lot of amazing dishes. One of the favorites that I have been asked to recreate is the seafood bake. This seafood bake is super easy. It has very simple ingredients in it.
Honestly, you can change the portions of the meat. I like to make mine with a large variety, but you could use just imitation crab meat if you like.
For my version, I use imitation crab and lobster, but I use real shrimp. If you like you can use only the crab as many restaurants use. Also if you desire you can add additional seasonings such as a touch of garlic powder or even some white pepper.
Does imitation crab taste like real crab?
Imitation crab is not real crab meat. It is a mixture of white fish. Often it is made with a blend of mild white fish like pollock, whiting, or haddock. It may contain a crab extract, it does contain coloring and a binder to shape it into miniature crab legs. While it does not taste exactly like crab, it is similar as it has a light flavor and a light texture. It is an economical alternative to more expensive crab meat.
