A Chef & World Traveler That Has Been Lucky Enough To Taste And Cook With Some Of The Best Ingredients Around The Globe. Time To Share.

History of Crab Ragoon

While It’s not known exactly where this now considered "Chinese” dish originated, there are a few theories. It's important to note, that cheese, in this case cream cheese, was not available in Chinese or Southeast Asia. This alone eliminates Asia from the list.The founder of Trader Vic's Tiki restaurant Victor Bergeron is said to be the originator of this delicious deep fried dish. It first appeared on the Asian-inspired restaurants menu in the mid 1950's.

Real Crab vs. Imitation Crab Meat

The main ingredient in imitation crab meat is a fish paste called surimi.

Surimi is made from pollock fish with additional fillers and additives such as sugar, egg whites, starch, and crab flavoring.

Imitation crab meat has a high amount of sodium. For every ounce of imitation crab meat there is 238.33 milligrams of sodium. This means 6 ounces of imitation crab meat contains nearly a full recommended daily sodium intake in one meal. The daily recommended limit for sodium intake is 1,500-2,300 milligrams. A high sodium diet increases risk of stroke, kidney disease, and high blood pressure So there's fish scraps, carbohydrates, and sugar.

My preference is real crab meat
