Canned crab meat 6 Ounce (170 Gram)
Cucumber 1 Small
Rice vinegar 1 Tablespoon
For golden dressing
Egg yolks 2
Secondary bonito stock 4 Tablespoon
Rice vinegar 2 Tablespoon
Sugar 1 Tablespoon
Cornstarch 3/4 Teaspoon
Salt 2/3 Teaspoon


1. Peel and seed cucumber. Slice thinly crosswise. Soak for 10 minutes in 1 cup water containing scant 1/2 tsp salt.

2. Drain crab meat. Remove any shell or cartilage. Sprinkle lightly with rice vinegar and pinch sugar.

3. GOLDEN DRESSING: Combine dressing ingredients in a double boiler. Stir constantly over boiling water until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and continue stirring until mixture cools. When dressing approaches a mayonnaise-like consistency, set aside.

4. Drain cucumber. Wrap in cheesecloth and gently squeeze to remove excess moisture (or squeeze by hand). Lightly sprinkle with rice vinegar.

5. Mound cucumber in 4 small bowls. Arrange crab alongside cucumber. Spoon 1 Tbsp dressing over each serving.
