Txaka are crab sticks, also known as surimi sticks, widely used in pintxo recipes across the Basque country. It is a product that uses starch and white fish meat (surimi) that has been shaped and cured to resemble the leg meat of snow crab or Japanese spider crab. Mixed with mayonnaise and served on a slice of toasted baguette bread, this is a classic Basque pintxo that is easy and quick to prepare.
