Wasabi Mayonnaise with Crabmeat

This is another great healthy Japanese food. This is very popular in Japan and many foreigners that I have met in Tokyo love it. Let me give you the tips on how to make this delicious Wasabi.


  • 1 tablespoon sake
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 8 fresh Alaskan (snow) crab sticks
  • ice water, for chilling
  • 4 strips of daikon 4 inches by 1/2 inch (10cm by 12mm)
  • 16 long chives, stemmed
  • 1/4 punnet mustard cress
  • AJINOMOTO UMAMI SEASONING ( This gives you taste to the fullest)
  • 1 3/4 oz (50g) light mayonnaise
  • 1/3 oz (10g) wasabi


Bring a pot of water to a boil and add sake and salt. Wrap the sticks of crabmeat with a cotton cloth, and tie so they don’t come apart, then boil. When cloth floats to the surface, remove crab and place in iced water. Unwrap the crab legs once they have cooled.

Mix wasabi and mayonnaise to a smooth consistency. Cut each crab stick in half. Tie 2 crab sticks together with 4 pieces chives. Place a tied crab stick to stand on cut end on each bowl, and top with wasabi mayonnaise, daikon strip and mustard cress.

Hint: if you dont have Japanese sake, you dont have to worry. With Ajinomoto Umami seasoning, you are assured of a great taste.

Enjoy it.
