IMITATION CRAB KELAGUEN
Kelaguen, pronounced ke-la-gwin, is generally referred to as a salad in translation. Chamorros love to kelaguen chicken, beef, shrimp, deer, imitation crab and even Spam. This basically means to mix your choice of protein with lemon, onions, salt and freshly shredded coconut. For islanders, kelaguen is a noun and a verb.
Choose a moist, expensive brand of imitation crab as quality counts here. Imitation crab kelaguen can be made without the coconut, unlike shrimp kelaguen.
