It's healthy, tasty and absolutely easy! So why not try it yourself?

Here are some tips:
1. Use the real kani- the ones that are flaky and more orange in color. The fake ones do not flake at all and has the texture of a fishball. They are also darker in color. And I think it's made mostly of starch. blech.
2. Mix in some Japanese Roasted Sesame dressing with the japanese mayo. Works wonders.
3. Use more force when grating the cucumber so they come out thicker.
4. Strain the cucumber for a good 10 minutes before piling on, this removes the excess water. Thus, start with the cucumber and by the time you finish up preparing everything, your 10 minutes is up =)

Now for the recipe. Check it out after the jump!
