Now that the weather is nicer, and all that snow is behind us, it’s time to move on to some fun seafood recipes. I have learned to use the fake frozen crab that is sold either in chunks or flakes in the frozen kosher fish section of supermarkets and smaller kosher specialty stores, like butchers. It is made of pollock and whiting and is really delicious. I have two very quick recipes for using the fish– a hot one and a refreshing cold one.
I also like to use the fresh frozen condiments. They come in tiny ice-cube like trays and are perfect for quick flavor.
