Dried Wakame is probably the most accessible sea vegetable for many of us. Most Asian grocery stores sell them. I usually buy Dried Wakame that are already cut into small pieces, but not too small. They can be used for many dishes.


4 Servings


1 large Cucumber *about 250g
1/4 teaspoon Salt
2 to 4 tablespoons Dry Wakame
1 can (95g) Tuna *drained

Sesame Dressing
2 tablespoons Toasted Sesame Seeds *ground
4 tablespoons Japanese Mayonnaise
1 to 2 teaspoons Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon Sugar

  1. Place thinly sliced Cucumber into a bowl. Add Salt and massage, then set aside.
  2. Soak Dried Wakame in cold water until soft, drain well. *Note: If Wakame pieces are large, cut into smaller pieces.
  3. Combine sesame dressing ingredients in a large bowl. Squeeze the sliced Cucumber to remove excess salty water, and add to the bowl. Add well drained Wakame and drained Tuna as well, and mix well to combine.
