Directions

  1. Gently mix the shrimp, imitation crabmeat, cabbage, celery, and green onions together in a large bowl. Stir the mayonnaise and sugar together in a separate bowl until the sugar is dissolved into the mayonnaise; add to the shrimp mixture and gently stir until all ingredients are evenly coated. Refrigerate for 3 hours to allow the cabbage to soften and the flavors to blend.

The three pounds of shrimp and imitation crab meat are interchangeable. You can make the entire salad a crab salad, a shrimp salad, or a combination. I must say that of all of the crab/shrimp salads available on allrecipes, this one tastes the most like I've had in countless restaurants. I used one 16 ounce bag of cole slaw mix; two bags would have been one too many. I also used lite mayo, which was just fine. I used four stalks of celery; I didn't want this to be a celery salad. This is a delicious side dish.

I didn't know if the cabbage would overwhelm this, but it didn't. I didn't have shrimp, so I used 1 pound of imitation crab and a bag of coleslaw. Otherwise, I followed the recipe and the flavor was wonderful, light and refreshing.

Simple to make with excellent results. I have to agree with CurtisLee though- 3-4 stalks of chopped celery is fine, not a whole bunch. I also advise making this the day or night before serving, the cabbage needs a bit more time to soften. I've made it several times now and took Jen K.'s advice and tried it with shredded carrots. I also add about 1/4 cup vinegar to the mayo/sugar mix to help soften the cabbage. Serve as is, or in Pita bread pockets.
