There are actually people out there who like Surimi. Just looked at wiki and they say it was invented 900 years ago in Japan to make fish more durable. Good idea back then I guess, but now it's just a way to sell cheap fish leftovers for much money. I don't like the taste, maybe the "quality" stuff tastes better.

i love kamaboko, but kanikama is....

maybe like the chicken nuggets of japan. but not as tasty...

I've never seen or eaten Kamaboko yet, but I guess it's the high quality version of surimi. Will definitely try it when I get the chance.

"crab". tastes like bland shit but mix in with a bunch of other ingredients. voila sushi at 4, 5 dollars a pair. hire some illegal immigrants to make them and you have profitable business.

I realize that california rolls are made with fake crab. Anyone ever had one that was made with the real stuff? Like an authentic california roll?
