Wakame` Sunomono - Cucumber salad

 Sunomono Wakame`

We often ate at a family run Japanese restaurant. Shared our milestone birthdays and anniversaries in this warm and homely restaurant. Simple it was bursting with energy, the staff incredibly talented and the owner Chef Mora humble and generous. Alas the home like restaurant has now been sold. But our memories of good food, laughter and joy remains.

Our girls loved the cucumber salad. Over time, I enjoy and relish it too. Here I have recreated this simple salad. Much to the delight of my family!

Serves 4

1 large cucumber - shaved lengthwise with a vegetable peeler or mandolin
1 tsp or more crushed Nori - seaweed
generous pinch of rock salt 
2 tsp Mirin
dash of sake - optional
generous pinch sesame seeds
1 tsp sesame oil
pinch of sugar

Just before serving toss together the ingredients. Serve chilled with a slice of lemon.


The longer you keep it the softer it will turn.

Traditionally it is very very thinly sliced and soft and sludgy but if you prefer a crunch use small cucumbers and slice it thicker. 

Wakame` is the green seaweed that you can find in many stores ready to eat.
