What can I use instead of crab sticks, that's vegetarian?

In what recipe?

Marinated tofu would be vegan.
Paneer or halloumi would be vegetarian.

they won't taste like crab sticks, but they will have protein and a vaguely similar texture depending on what you're doing with them.

Cashew nuts might work better in a different recipe. What's it for?

Russian style crab salad.

Crab sticks and sweetcorn are main flavours really.

A lot of the flavour in that recipe will be coming from the horseradish, I don't think there's is an obvious sub for the crab, I think I would either leave it out entirely or sub for something that would go with the horseradish, raw shredded beetroot for example. I guess if you wanted to replicate the meaty texture of the crab finely chopped quorn may work or even hard boiled egg.

Sorry, just realised it already contains hard boiled egg.

I've used it as a fish sub quite successfully before.

Never heard of jackfruit, interesting.
