Cucumber & Krab Salad

I was craving for imitation crab meat earlier this morning… why? I have no idea. I haven’t had it in years! So I made it for lunch and the craving was quelled.

For the Dressing

  • 3 TBS rice wine vinegar
  • 1 TBS sugar
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 TBS dashi

In a small pot, melt ingredients together until sugar has dissolved. Take off heat and set aside to cool.

For the Salad

  • 2 Persian cucumbers
  • 1 TBS wakame
  • 4 krab sticks
  • White sesame seeds, toasted
  • Salt

Rehydrate wakame in some water to cover.

Peel cucumbers and then using a mandolin, slice into thin pieces. Sprinkle salt over sliced cucumbers and let it sit for 5 minutes. Rinse under running water and using your hands, squeeze out water. Then place in a bowl.

Shred krab sticks and place with the cucumbers. Add rehydrated wakame into the bowl and the dressing. Plate and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
