Corn and Crabstick Salad
If you have been to Ajisen, you might find this familiar. Yeah, I'm a copycat but please don't flame me hor.
I'm not a Ajisen fan but my kids are. Okay, they are only fans of their Ton Toro Ramen. They have nothing else there but that! Me, not being a fan, usually watch them eat if I bring them there for lunch. :P One of those 'watching them eat' days, I causally flipped their menu (I usually don't see it since it always the same thing we order) and saw this Corn Salad and went ahead to order it. I was cursing myself after that. Why? Because it $7 and I can make it myself.
It's basically crabstick, corn, tobiko or ebiko and mayonnaise, all mixed together. Add in some shredded Japanese cucumber for extra crunch if you like. (Okay, maybe they added some secret ingredient that I couldn't taste. I got no sensitive palate. :P) Simple?
In case you are wondering, I bought my ingredients from Giant IMM. I'm using Watties frozen Super Sweet Corn. And I steamed the corn and crabstick first. Let it cool before I add in the rest of the ingredients.
Try this at home or pay $7 for it at Ajisen. ;)
