Used in the California Rolls, these are perhaps
the most straightforward ingredient. Available in most stores, they are low
fat and very tasty. "Crabstick" is probably the wrong name for this product,
because in reality they probably contain only a very small percentage of crab
meat. They are mostly made from pressed white fish of many varieties. This is
perhaps the reason that most supermarkets, at least in the UK, display them
as "Seafood Sticks". In the UK they cost around 11pence each.
Preparation For California Rolls
Simple, remove the cellophane sleeves, simply slice them into two, lengthways,
cutting down the middle of the red-stained face, so each half has some red colouring.
About two and a half of these will be laid lengthways inside the California
Roll, the remaining half is a nibble for the chef!
