  1. These look great! I bought a huge package of imitation crab and didn’t know what to do with the rest. Thanks!

  2. Are these best served hot or cold?

  3. Shalom.
    Many thanks for your recipes. Especially the Gluten free ones. Which I will use.
    What is Panko please? And as I live in England. Is there imatation crab? I might just use the salmon and double it up.
    Many thanks.

    • Hi Dawn thanks for writing. Panko are Japanese bread crumbs, they are little lighter than regular bread crumbs, but you can use gluten free bread crumbs. I have been told that the kosher fake crab is not so readily available outside of the US, it is a fun addition, but not necessary. I have a few other salmon cake recipes too and one uses chickpea flour so is gluten and egg free.

    is there an alternative to panko bread crumbs that would work well here? I try to use grain products made only with whole grain, and kosher whole wheat panko seem to be unavailable in my area. any ideas? thanks.

  5. Thank you!

  6. Thank you for “crab” cake recipe. Looking forward to trying it. Fran

    I never thought of combining salmon and imitation crab. Are they good?!!!

    • Would I have shared this recipe if it wasn’t :) – yes, it works really well together, but you have to try it for yourself and please report back.
