- Yields: Serves: 4-6
First of all, let’s get this seaweed re-hydrated. Thoroughly rinse the wakame seaweed (to eliminate salt), then place in a bowl & cover with boiled water to soak for 10-15 minutes 10 Minutes until tender. If you like crunchy seaweed, soak for 5 minutes. Drain, rinse, squeeze out excess water. If wakame is uncut, cut up, using scissors into 1/2-inch-wide strips.
Wash cucumber and peel one ½-inch-side strip lengthwise, leaving a strip of the skin for extra crunchiness. Cut the cucumbers into thin slices. Place cucumber in a bowl and sprinkle sea salt. Cover with cold water and massage slices in water for a minute, let sit for 15 minutes 15 Minutes. Transfer cucumber to a bowl one handful at a time, squeezing excess water out of the cucumbers.
