Choices of Bread

The Subway Seafood Sensation is traditionally served on a sub roll, a light and soft bun sturdy enough to hold any fillings. But you can substitute sub roll with other sturdy bread options.

This seafood delight recipe contains mayonnaise, sour cream and imitation crab, which all are wet ingredients.

It’s important to choose a sturdy enough bread for a subway seafood sensation sandwich so that it can hold up the moist ingredients and prevent the sandwich from becoming soggy.

  • Amongst sturdy bread, opt for Italian bread. Unlike french bread, Italian bread contains milk or olive oil, making it more similar to soft bread. It also uses hard wheat flour, giving the bread a higher gluten content, responsible for its firm and dense texture.

  • Whole wheat bread is also considered sturdy because it contains whole wheat flour. This type of flour has more fiber and protein than white flour. The fiber gives the bread a chewy texture and helps to retain moisture.

  • French baguette is a popular choice for sandwiches due to its airy texture. And of course, my favorite bread option! It’s not as sturdy as the other options I listed, still it’s flavorful. Simply make sure not to overload it with the wet mixture.

  • Some people like to wrap the mixture in tortillas and use it as a pinwheel sandwich filling. If you’re also a fan of this kind of sandwich, it’s best to use a whole wheat or corn tortilla as they have a denser texture. You can also pair it with a slice of cheese and lettuce to create a barrier and prevent the tortilla from becoming too wet.

Servings Suggestions

  • Seafood subway sensation is a great mixture for a salad topper. With arugula salad, onion slices, tomatoes, boiled eggs and cucumber slices, you have a healthy, filling meal.

  • For a fun combination, add to eggs benedict and creamy hollandaise.

  • And if you mix the leftovers with cooked pasta, you end up with a fresh and delicious pasta salad.

Storage Instructions

  • In the Fridge: You can store imitation seafood with mayonnaise in the refrigerator for approximately 3-4 days.

  • Don’t Freeze: I don’t recommend freezing this mixture, because the dressing contains dairy, which tends to separate. You’ll end up with a watery dressing and an unpleasant texture.
