Directions

  1. Lay cucumber slices onto a large plate and sprinkle with salt on both sides. Set aside until water is drawn from the cucumber, about 15 minutes. Brush salt from cucumbers and press with paper towel to remove excess moisture.
  2. Combine cucumber slices, crab sticks, rice vinegar, and soy sauce in a glass dish bowl; toss to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour (or up to 24 hours).
  3. Divide cucumber salad onto 4 plates; sprinkle each portion with sesame seeds.

Meh, not my favorite...at all. All I tasted was soy sauce. No garlic, no ginger, no onion, nothing! I even used garlic rice vinegar. Eat everything separate and enjoy them. This will not make you happy.

Disappointing. Salting slices made for salty slices, not dry ones, as the extracted moisture simply liquefied the salt. The subtle flavor of the faux shellfish (I used lobster) largely drowned by salt here and the soy sauce (I even used low sodium). Very underwhelmed. There may be some subtle trick / technique which would be critical (?), however, I'll leave that to someone else to discover.
