  • 1 small cucumber grated
  • Salt, for sprinkling
  • 1 large cooked crab
  • 1 small piece fresh ginger grated
  • Chinese cabbage

for serving

  • 3 tbsps rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsps dry sherry
  • 2 tbsps soy cause


  • Sprinkle the cucumber with salt and leave for 30 minutes.
  • Crack the legs and claws off the crab. Remove the meat from the claws and legs, but leave four thin legs whole as a garnish.
  • Separate the underbody from the shell. Remove and discard the stomach sac and the grey, feathered gills.
  • Scrape the brown meat from the shell and crack open the underbody. Use a skewer to pick out the meat.
  • Rinse the cucumber, drain well and squeeze out excess moisture. Mix together the cucumber, crab meat and ginger.
  • Arrange the Chinese cabbage on serving plates, to represent crab shells. Pile equal quantities of crab mixture onto the Chinese cabbage, leaving some of the leaf showing. Garnish with a whole crab leg and some grated, pickled ginger, if you can get it.
  • Mix together the vinegar, sherry and soy sauce. Serve with the crab in little bowls.
