“Imitation is the sincerest form of crab meat”

"Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” is an old proverb. “Imitation is the sincerest form of crab meat” is a saying that has been printed on several images. The saying reflects the fact that much of what is called “crab meat” is imitation crab meat.

Wikipedia: Surimi
Surimi (Japanese: 擂り身 / すり身, “ground meat") refers to a paste made from fish or other meat. It can also refer to a number of East Asian foods that use that paste as their primary ingredient. It is available in many shapes, forms, and textures, and is often used to mimic the texture and color of the meat of lobster, crab, grilled Japanese eel and other shellfish.

The most common surimi product in the Western market is imitation crab meat. Such a product often is sold as krab, imitation crab and mock crab in the United States, and as seafood sticks, crab sticks, fish sticks, seafood highlighter or seafood extender in Commonwealth nations.
