If you’re a fan of sushi flavors, you’re going to love this dish. It combines seasoned rice, spicy salmon and creamy crab meat to form the PERFECT BITE. I found a delicious looking video on TikTok by @gaming_foodie and just had to try it.

This was the first time I’ve ever used imitation crab meat. I’ve always cooked with the real stuff. But since a small tin is currently $40, I was willing to give the faux stuff a try. Its absolutely delicious and easy to cook with. Make sure you buy the crab legs for shredding.

You can use any rice in this recipe – doesn’t have to be sushi rice. You can skip the crab meat too if you like and just salmon. The Kewpie mayo can also be substituted with any type of mayo you like. And the Sriracha can be subbed with any hot sauce you have on hand.
