Crab sticks are a form of imitation crabmeat. These sticks are primarily composed of a fish protein known as surimi. Crab sticks often are cheaper than genuine crabmeat, which makes them popular in a variety of dishes. One of the easiest ways and healthiest methods of preparing crab sticks is to use them in salads as an appetizer or a side dish to an entrée.
