Make this salsa your own by using the ingredients that work best for you. This recipe calls for imitation crab, which is mainly whitefish, however feel free to sub in your preferred fish like crab, shrimp or another fish filet like cod. If you’re eating vegetarian or vegan, sub in your choice of protein variety like tofu or try out a pre-made vegan shrimp or crab.

Use it as a salsa to spoon up with chips or grab a tortilla to make this salsa into your very own version of fish tacos. Top with any additional ingredients like sliced avocado, lettuce or freshly chopped tomatoes.
