Pollack Seafood Dip Recipe
This recipe can be used with different kinds of seafood like cooked shrimp, crab or lobster.
For parties, I use Alaskan Pollack, also referred to as "imitation crab meat" for the simple reason that some people are allergic to shell fish.
Alaskan Pollack (which is actually a cod species) is mostly caught up in the Bering Sea.
They can grow up to 1 meter in length and weigh in at over 20 kg. The meat is white and very tasty.
|Mince the celery very fine|
- 5 sticks of celery
- 4 green onions
- 1 (approx 300 g) Imitation Crab Meat (Alaskan Pollack)
- ¾ Cup of Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip. This is very personal, it should be creamy but not to much.

|Mince the green onion very fine|
Chop the celery, green onion and the pollack very fine.
I can not emphasis how important this is. If it is not very finely cut, it just does not have the flavour.
My mom actually uses only 2-3 sticks of celery but I have found that 5 gives it a much more refreshing taste.... just my opinion. Sorry Mom
Mix in the Miracle Whip (that's what mom uses) or mayonnaise (that's what I prefer) and stir.
Taste, and if you prefer you can add a bit of salt, pepper, and paprika.
Let sit at least a few hours or over night in the fridge.
Serve with toasted slices of baguette or crackers.
Wine Pairing and Recommendations:
Well, with a dip like this you can go with just about anything that your heart desires. A local bottle of Pinot Grigio from Cherry Point Vineyard will be just fine
