Enoki Crabstick Salad with Wasabi Mayonnaise Dressing Recipe

My number one favorite Japanese salad is potato salad, the next one is either this enoki crabstick salad with wasabi mayonnaise dressing or sarada no gomae (salad with sesame dressing).

When I need a super quick and easy salad though, then this enoki crabstick salad is definitely the best choice. If you have everything handy, you can easily prepare this delicious salad in under 15 minutes!

Ingredients for Enoki Crabstick Salad with Wasabi Mayonnaise Dressing

What you need to prepare enoki crabstick salad

For the salad, you need only three main ingredients:

  • crab sticks,
  • enoki, and
  • scallions.

The salad dressing needs a bit more ingredients, but not overwhelmingly so. You will need:

From my experience, all the listed ingredients shouldn’t be too hard to come by. The only thing that could be difficult is enoki, you can substitute with shredded cabbage, or other salad greens of your choice.

Preparing the Salad

The only cooking involved is to blanch the enoki, which if you are super lazy, you can kinda cook them in a microwave too.

Everything else is pretty basic, tear the crab sticks into shreds, chop the scallions, and mix the dressing.

To make the salad, just toss everything together so all the ingredients are coated with the sauce.

This salad is best served chill, so stick the whole thing in the fridge for an hour or two before serving.

Broccolini Sesame Dressing Recipe | Daily Cooking Quest

What is your favorite dressing? Mine is Japanese sesame dressing (胡麻和え – goma ae). This super easy dressing makes the most humble greens shine through.

I make this dressing all the time and pair it everything from spinach, broccoli, watercress, yu choi, and of course, broccolini.

Despite this broccolini sesame dressing recipe uses broccolini, feel free to pair this lovely goma ae with all sort of greens.

Goma Ae (Sesame Dressing)

The amount of dressing works for any one pound of vegetables.

You will need 1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 2 tablespoon sugar, and 100 ml (6 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon) dashi stock.

Don’t worry if you cannot find sesame seeds that are pre-roasted. You can easily toast them on a frying pan (as is, without any oil) over medium heat until fragrant and golden brown.

I have a slight intolerant to peanuts and all sort of nuts, so this sesame dressing is a God send to me 🙂 It is super nutty just like nuts, but completely nut-free!

Preparing broccolini

Most of the times, broccolini comes with green tops and stalk bottoms. It is best if you can separate the greens from the stalks. I usually half or even quarter the stalks depending on how thick they are.

Not much needs to be done to the broccolini. Just boil a large pot of lightly salted water, then blanch for 2 minutes.

To retain the lovely green color of your vegetables, you must rinse in ample cold water and even soak in a large mixing bowl of cold water with ice cubes.

Once completely cool, gently squeeze and cut into bite sizes. Arrange the vegetables in a nice platter, and serve with the goma-ae.
