  • 8 oz Imitation crab meat
  • 1/4 cup Shredded Carrots
  • 1 medium Cucumber, shredded
  • 1/3 cup Sriracha Mayo
  • 1 tsp Vinegar
  • Avocado (optional)
  • 2 tbs Sesame Seeds (optional)


  • First, shred or slice the imitation crab meat thin (julienne) and add it to a medium sized bowl.
  • Then add the shredded carrots. (I buy them already shredded at the grocery store but you can slice one thin or grate it if you want.
  • Using a peeler, peel the cucumber from the outside in until you hit the middle where the seeds are.
  • Using a knife, slice the peeled cucumber into thinner shreds (julienne) and add it to the bowl.
  • To make the dressing, mix the sriracha mayo with the vinegar. Pour it on top of the kani salad and toss to combine.
  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds and add sliced avocado if you'd like. Serve cold and enjoy!
