The 3 Best Healthy Imitation Crab Recipes You Will Love

Use these tasty and Healthy Imitation Crab Recipes to mix up your daily routine and try something new! I’ve got a list that is quite flexible, including salads, pizza, pasta, and even two distinct crab rangoons, which you should test for yourself. Let’s explored the Top 3 Healthy Imitation Crab Recipes below:

1.  Ceviche Healthy Imitation Crab Recipes (Ceviche de Jaiva)

Healthy Imitation Crab Recipes


  • Imitation crab sticks offer a superior flavor and texture to imitation crab flakes or shredded imitation crab, according to my research. Also, Osaki, Kanikama, TransOcean, or Louis Kemp Crab Delights are the top brands I’ve discovered. Most supermarket stores have fake crab.
  • Roma Tomatoes – South American cuisine and tomatoes go together so well! No exceptions apply to this ceviche. Cherry tomatoes are used in some ceviche recipes. Diced big tomatoes are used in other recipes. Others combine fresh tomatoes and tomato juice, Clamato, or both.
  • Small Red Onion – Nothing improves the flavor of a seafood salad like the perfect quantity of red onion. Just be cautious not to add too much red onion because that will make the other flavors overpowering. While some recipes call for white, yellow, or sweet onions, I really prefer red onions.
  • I adore using fresh avocado in so many different meals. It significantly enhances the ceviche recipe’s color, texture, and flavor. Fresh cilantro is a need for this recipe. It elevates the flavor significantly.
  • Lime: This recipe is incredibly well-flavored with the juice of fresh limes! Get yourself a lemon/lime squeezer as a favor (Amazon). Simply cut the lime in half, put it in the juicer, and pour the delicious juice into a basin.
  • Olive Oil: When combined with lime juice, olive oil makes a delicious, energizing ceviche dressing. Salt and pepper.

Instructions for Healthy Imitation Crab Recipes:

  • Step 1:  First, shred the imitation crab and put it in a big bowl.

I used the flake type and simply broke it up into smaller bits with my hands because I couldn’t find the imitation crab sticks at the specific grocery store I went to.

  • Step 2: Stir imitation crab with olive oil before adding cilantro, onion, tomato, avocado, and peppers.

Crab meat and olive oil should be combined in a big bowl until the crab meat is coated. Add the finely chopped peppers (if using peppers), diced tomato, sliced onion, diced avocado, and chopped cilantro. Mix thoroughly after that.

  • Step 3: Add salt and pepper to taste and pour lime juice over the ceviche.

The last stages are to add the freshly squeezed lime juice and season with salt and black pepper. The hardest part of this recipe is waiting for your ceviche to chill nicely and be ready to serve after putting it in the refrigerator for about an hour. Ah, the eagerness!

2. Baked Imitation Crab Rangoon Flatbread Pizza with Sweet Chili Sauce

Healthy Imitation Crab Recipes


  • Use store-bought or try this delectable recipe for sourdough waste flatbread if you have a sourdough starter. You can make this No Yeast Flatbread with this recipe if you don’t have a sourdough starter.
  • Crab: Any kind of crab meat will do. Whatever is most convenient or affordable for you. Lump crab meat is available in cans in the seafood section or the freezer section. I use surimi or fake crab meat the majority of the time. Crab rangoons are frequently produced using imitation crab flesh in restaurants.
  • Cream Cheese: To make mixing easier, let the cream cheese soften at room temperature. It can also be heated in the microwave for 15 seconds at a time until it is soft.
  • Sour Cream: The slight tanginess of the sour cream complements the sweetness of the cream cheese. These sauces—Worcestershire, Soy, and Sweet Chili—give the cream cheese spread some traditional Chinese flavors.
  • A few vegetables, like green onions and sweet bell pepper, give my pizzas a great crispness to contrast with the creamy sauce and oozy cheese. Wonton Strips can be found in the salad dressing aisle next to the croutons.

Instructions for Healthy Imitation Crab Recipes:

  • Set oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. In the bowl of your stand mixer, add the softened cream cheese, and beat until light and fluffy. Add the Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, sugar in powder form, and sweet chili sauce by stirring.
  • Spread the cream cheese mixture equally over the flatbreads and place them on a pizza pan, steel, or stone. Green onions, bell peppers, and crab meat (or surimi) should all be added. Add some grated mozzarella cheese on top.
  • Until the cheese is melted and the crust is crispy, bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Pizzas are baked, then wonton strips are placed on top, followed by sweet chili sauce.

3. The Best Healthy Imitation Crab Recipes Dip

One of the best things about this simple crab dip recipe is that all you have to do is combine the ingredients once you have them all together. It goes without saying that this is a wonderful, simple recipe for game days when you want something tasty to dip into! The only other step that takes some time is chilling the imitation crab dip before serving.

The Best Healthy Imitation Crab Recipes Dip


  • Kraft Cream Cheese Philadelphia My preferred brand of cream cheese comes from Amazon. Cream cheese works well in pastries, dips, and even as a spread for some jelly on toast.
  • Sour Cream: When it comes to recipes for dips, cream cheese and sour cream tend to go hand in hand. Nothing special about this recipe.
  • Celery – Isn’t celery such an underappreciated vegetable? It works well for adding texture and crunch to your recipe by slicing it up or chopping it into sticks to use as a “dipper.”
  • Green Onions – I also enjoy including green onions, often known as scallions, in my recipes. It enhances the flavor slightly without being overpoweringly spicy.
  • Lemon Juice and cheddar cheese is the ideal cheese to include in this imitation crab dip. Get the extra-sharp kind, please!
  • Crab imitation with hot pepper sauce

Instructions for Healthy Imitation Crab Recipes:

Step 1: Mixing cream cheese with sour cream

First, use an electric mixer, such as this stand mixer (Amazon) (trust me when I say that this will definitely save your arm strength and make things so much easier for you!) Cream cheese and sour cream should be thoroughly mixed.

  • Step 2: Combine the rest of the ingredients.

Second, add the remaining ingredients to the bowl of the mixer and stir well with a big spoon.

  • Step 3: Put Imitation Crab Dip in the fridge to chill

After that, pour the imitation crab dip into a big bowl, cover it, and chill it in the fridge for 30 to 60 minutes. The flavor of this dip is best served cold as opposed to at room temperature. Now that your creamy crab dip is prepared, you may enjoy it with Ritz crackers, pita chips, fresh vegetables, tortilla chips, or any other crackers you want.
