  • ¼ cup almonds toasted sliced
  • 2 cups celery (cut on a bias)
  • 1 cup imitation crab gluten-free
  • cup mayonnaise (We used Japanese Kewpie Brand but can exchange with vegan or gluten-free Mayo as desired)
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder dried
  • cup edamame beans (shelled)
  • salt and white pepper to taste
  • cup peas thawed, previously frozen
  • 8 romaine lettuce leaves optional


  • Add sliced almonds to a dry pan and toast until just slightly toasty around 2 minutes . Remove from pan and allow to cool.
  • In a medium bowl, add celery, imitation crab meat, mayonnaise, curry powder, edamame beans, salt , white pepper to taste, frozen peas and toss.
  • Lay out your lettuce cups on a plate, spoon in the crab salad and top with roasted almonds. (Optional) or just enjoy as is or on top of cracker or in a sandwich.
  • Enjoy!


If you are diabetic or want to reduce the carbohydrates please exchange with real cooked crab meat or canned crab. In addition, remove the peas and add a low carb vegetable like cucumber instead.
