This is a traditional Japanese salad recipe which is easy and quick to prepare.
For US to UK equivalents see this rough guide

Recipe Ingredients:

  • Cucumber - 1
  • Rice wine Vinegar - 1/2 Cup
  • Crab meat - 1/4 Kg
  • Sugar - 2 tbsp
  • Soya Sauce - 2 tbsp
  • Salt to taste


Wash and cut cucumber into thin slices (rounds). Place salt over cucumber slices and set aside for 30 min. Whilst the salt should have absorbed most of the the liquid, squeeze cucumber slices to remove any excess. Mix vinegar, sugar, and soy sauce in a cup. Place crab meat and cucumber slices in a bowl and pour the dressing over and mix well.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
