So when my boyfriend suggested crab sticks for dinner the other night, I had no idea what he was talking about. It turns out crab sticks are little pre-cooked, processed morsels that taste like crab but are actually made up of fish parts and other fillers. Sound good? Well, it was. Real good.
I did (partially) ruin this brilliance by putting it over a couple packs of Ramen noodles I’ve had in the cupboard forever. Next time I will definitely put this mixture over a more quality noodle so as not to insult its integrity. I will also cut the crab sticks into smaller bites before stir frying. (I thought they would break up in the wok, but they didn’t really.)
All in all, I consider my foray into crab stick cookin’ to be a success, but I am definitely anxious to give it another go now that I know these little guys deserve my full attention.
