This is my version of (fake) crab salad. It's evolved over the years, and changes every time, but this is the basic recipe. I'm always asked to make it for parties.

  • 300 g imitation crabmeat (I use Alaska pollack)
  • 1 bunch scallion, green part only
  • 250 g pasta, dry weight,then cooked
  • 250 g your favorite chunky salsa (I use something called matboucha)
  • 1 (560 g) can chickpeas
  • salt and pepper (I only use pepper)


  1. Cut up the faux crab into salad size pieces.
  2. Shred the scallions and add to the fish.
  3. Add the cooked pasta, salsa, chickpeas and salt and pepper.
  4. Toss to mix.
  5. Chill for at least one hour.
  6. Serve in a pretty glass bowl to show off the colors.
