酥脆炸蟹柳 Crispy Fried Crabstick

Chinese Lunar New Year is almost 1 week away but seems that I've lots of stuff yet to be done!!! >0<" Luckily both of my kids are in school during the morning, thus I can do some quick baking during their absent :D 

Do you notice nowadays there are several innovative CNY snacks available in the market? e.g....Seaweed with Popiah Skin, Crispy Cod Fish Stripes, Mini Crispy Spring Roll with various fillings, Crispy Crabstick etc…I've actually wanted to make this crispy crabstick last year but too lazy and so the pack of imitation crabstick was kept in freezer since last year hahaha….Now I know why this little snack is so popular… taste salty and full of crunch after frying, totally addictive! But have to consume sparingly as I've mentioned is rather salty. 

500gm of imitation crabsticks

Gently unroll the crabsticks and tear them into narrow strips

Deep fried in medium hot oil till golden brown and drain well on kitchen paper. Cool well before storing in air-tight container.

Garnish with some toasted sesame seeds and ready to serve!

I am linking this post to Bake Along event, Chinese New cookies for the month Jan 2014 organised by Frozen Wing, Bake for Happy Kids and  Kitchen Flavours.

Hi Peng,
We love these! Addictive!
And yes, as long as this is a crispy snack, can be kept in a jar for weeks, that is fine with us! Link it up! :)
