Macaroni KaniKama Salad

KaniKama is the Japanese term for imitation crab meat, most commonly used when making California Rolls in Sushi restaurants.  I’ve always preferred using KaniKama when I make  seafood macaroni salad; even when I was living in the Philippines, since it is easy to prepare, budget friendly and lasts longer in the refrigerator.

This is a simple and money saving base recipe that you can make in a pinch.


  • Add your own spices, herbs, fruit and vegetables according to taste
  • For al dente/firm macaroni: Cook/Boil macaroni at minimum suggested time per package instructions



Macaroni KaniKama Macaroni Salad

2 packs thinly sliced imitation crab meat (I bought whole pieces but also available pre-cut )
5 thinly sliced celery stalks
1/2 medium size onion, finely chopped
1 lb elbow macaroni
1 1/2 cup mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions (optional)

1. Cook elbow macaroni per package instructions, drain and cool
2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well
3. Add salt and pepper to taste
4. Cover and Refrigerate for at least an hour and serve cold


Saving money is a big deal to me. I always try to make dishes that are delicious, easy to make, and budget savvy.  I also jump at the chance to buy things on sale, and the best of all is when items or activities are free!
