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
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.
