After several days of craving a crab bake casserole like the one at my local Chinese buffet, I came up with this recipe by tweaking one that I found online. To me, this tastes pretty close to those that I've had at several chinese buffets.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients together. Place into pan and sprinkle cheddar cheese on top. Bake in 350 degree oven for approximately 30 minutes.
  2. VARIATION: You can mix seafood types -- use 1/2 lb. crab and 1/2 lb. shrimp, lobster, or other seafood.

Outstanding recipe ! I used green onion instead and used all low fat versions of the cheeses - my husband rates it 10 out of 10. I made a chopped macadamia nut, parmesean cheese, bread crumb topping with a little butter to brown it. Excellent ! Thanks for sharing !

I never had this at a Chinese buffet, but this version is quite delicious. It really spruces up imitation crab. I used reduced-fat versions of the dairy products and it was still nice and rich. Loved it. Thanx!

This recipe is spot on from the Chinese restaurant! My husband absolutely loves it! I took the advice of another poster and use green onions instead of regular sweet onion. Instead of swiss cheese I used Colby and Monterey Jack cheese and fresh garlic not powdered then topped with sharp cheddar about a full cup. Next time I make it I think I might use half imitation crab and half shrimp.
