Spinach with imitation Crabs

My little girl loves imitation crabs, since they are made with white fish, this is a good way for us to get the recommended weekly servings. Super easy to cook and there was none left for tomorrow’s lunch.

1 pound fresh spinach
1 bag of imitation crabs/lobsters
4 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil (for cooking in a non-stick wok or a fry pan)
1 teaspoon pure sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar

Wash the spinach thoroughly. Remove the stems if any and excess water. Crush, peel and finely chop the garlic.

To Cook:
Heat oil in a non-stick wok or a large fry pan over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, brown garlic for a few seconds. Add spinach to wok, stir turning the spinach for about 2 minutes. When the spinach is cooked down and soft, add imitation crabs/lobsters, sesame oil, salt and sugar. Cook and stir for 30 seconds longer. Transfer the spinach onto a plate and pour off any excess liquid. Careful not over cook the spinach. Serve hot.

    I thought your comment on my blog(www.theallamericanchinesecookbook.com) was so nice that I came here to check out your recipes. However I am disappointed to see that you copied the language for spinach recipe verbatim despite adding the crab. Such a shame. I would have hoped you would credit the author or at least change the wording.

      Thank you for the reply Lucy, I should credit the author from now on, this website was set up so my family members/friends can look at my cooking progress, so it wasn’t intended to take any credit for the recipes. My apologies!
