What we love about these plant-based products is that they aren’t trying to recreate the seafoods they’re named for, they’re more inspired by them. The goal here isn’t (and your expectation shouldn’t be) to replicate the seafood, this isn’t the Impossible Burger of tinned fish, the goal is to bring to you plant-based options that will play nice with all of the existing recipes, serving styles, and accoutrements of the tinned fish experience.
This “snow crab” is made with enoki mushrooms and seaweed. We find it on the sweet side, which is entirely consistent with the crabmeat flavor profle, and the straw-like stems of enoki require no extrusion or other industrial modification to force them into imitation. We sampled them simply forked onto crackers with a gorgonzola and it was delicious.
