Spring is finally here and it is a great time to celebrate warmer weather and sunnier days by hosting get-togethers with friends and family. And if you’re looking to impress with a dish ripe for spring, surimi is a flavorful ingredient to add to salads, sandwiches, pastas, dips and more.

Whether you’re hosting a weekend brunch, celebrating Easter or heading outside for a picnic, Louis Kemp Crab Delights are a delicious and economical way to add spring flavor and the nutritional benefits of seafood to any dish. The surimi seafood is a good source of protein, low in calories and cholesterol and a guilt-free way to wow your guests.

Made from premium wild Alaskan Pollock and real snow crab, surimi seafood is fully cooked and can be served hot or cold, on-the-go and straight from the package to add extra protein and delicious crab flavor to any meal or snack. An alternative to crab meat and other shellfish, Crab Delights can liven up your spring entertaining with recipes such as Surimi Quiche and Seafood and Cherry Tomato Pasta.
