Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear about your allergy, I can imagine how frustrating that must be. As far as I know all imitation crab contains crab extract for flavor. What I would recommend is trying some great new fish that is not shell fish. My favorites are salmon, bluefish, swordfish, trout, perch, and so many more. Canned salmon is wonderfully inexpensive and can be made into cakes very similar to crab (lemon, mayo, bread crumbs, seasoning, etc.)

I hope that's helpful!
