Cornish crab, cucumber and wakame salad

Staff Correspondent
Cornish crab, cucumber and wakame salad

If you are starting with a whole crab, you won’t need the brown meat for this dish. It’s a crying shame to waste it, so turn it into a dip: pass the brown meat through a fine sieve to make a smooth paste, then mix with 100g mayonnaise and the juice of half a lemon. It’s great for dunking blanched sprouting broccoli stalks or asparagus.
The cucumber and seaweed really benefit from their marinade, so make them ahead of time. Serves four.

For the crab
200g fresh white crab meat, or 1 brown crab, cooked and picked
150g sea salt
4.5 litres water
For the salad
100ml rice vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
25g sugar
13g sea salt
20g dried wakame
1 cucumber
50g fresh ginger

First make the salad. Put the rice vinegar, soy, sugar and 8g of the salt in a small saucepan and heat gently, stirring, until the sugar and salt dissolve, then leave to cool.

Put the wakame in a bowl, cover with cold water and set aside for an hour, until fully rehydrated.
Cut off and discard both ends of the cucumber, then, using a vegetable peeler, peel off strips of skin lengthways, so you end up with a striped cucumber, half peeled, half not, in alternating stripes. Cut the cucumber into 1.5mm-thick slices (a mandoline is by far the best tool for this job), then put them in a bowl with 200ml water and the rest of the salt. Massage gently with your hands, then squeeze out the liquid and put the cucumber back in the bowl.
