My favorite sub sandwiches are made with imitation crab salad. Some crab salad from Subway and Which Wich has discontinued or just does not serve it anymore. Maybe they just didn’t sell enough to keep them around? Who knows.

That has made me resort to making my own crab salad recipe at home. So for a while, I would just get the Publix Grocery Store Neptune Salad and some submarine rolls and that would satisfy my cravings.

I moved away from the east coast a couple of years ago and there are no Publix stores out here on the west coast. Now I make the salad from scratch.

How to make the Subway Seafood Sensation Recipe

My fav seafood salad recipe is the Publix version. Check the link for that one. It has more ingredients than this simple crab meat salad one.

Publix stores have shrimp and celery in their Neptune salad. The other two sub shops do not. Here is my version of Subway’s Sensational Seafood Salad Recipe and the Which Which Krab Salad recipe.

More Imitation Crab Recipes to try:

MAKE AHEAD: Place salad in an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. 
FREEZER: Place leftovers in an airtight container or freezer bag. Freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost in the refrigerator overnight.

  1. I love me some good krab, and great recipe… but I never really understood what is in it? Is it like the hot dog of fish parts?

    1. Lol, Dan you are cracking me up. Surimi is pollock fish mixed with a salt and sugar paste, then reconstructed to look like expensive seafood, like lobster or crab. I am not sure why they need to fool us.
