  1. In a large bowl, use your hands to mix together the imitation crabmeat, onion, serrano peppers, jalapeno peppers, and cream cheese. Season with salt and some of the liquid from the pickled jalapenos if desired. Form the mixture into a ball, and roll in chopped cilantro. Refrigerate until serving.

I made this recipe for a party and it was a huge hit. I think this is the sort of recipe you either love or hat - no middle ground.

I made this for a dinner party. I am glad I tried it before I served it, because it was not very good at all. I will not make this again

Too wet to ball up: absolute failure. If I could give zero stars, I would. Completely unpresentable.

I used this recipe as a starting point for making a krab mix for sushi. I don't particularly enjoy cream cheese in my rolls so I substituted mayo and used the rest of the ingredients to my own taste. I was skeptical about using the pickled jalepeno but found that they were very tasty, I also mixed in the cilantro. I added this mixture to a sushi roll and found it very enjoyable. I will definately use this again, next time I will be sure to add more serrano peppers since I like it a little hotter.

Delicious! Used and 8 oz. cream cheese, green onions instead of regular and rolled in dried cilantro instead of fresh.
