Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 egg
1/2 chinese cabbage
1/2 cup picked watercress leaves
3 tablespoons Miso dressing
1 nashi, peeled and diced
150g picked, cooked spanner crabmeat
sea salt

Nori powder

Quantity Ingredient
5g nori sheets, torn into small pieces
10g shaved tororo kombu
20g puffed wild rice
1/2 teaspoon salt

Method

  1. To make the nori powder, preheat the oven to 120°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place the nori, kombu and puffed wild rice on the baking tray. Turn the oven off and place the tray in the oven. Warm gently in the residual heat for 3–5 minutes until aromatic and slightly crisp. Remove from the oven and cool to room temperature.
  3. Pulse the nori and kombu to a fine powder in a spice grinder, ensuring there are no large pieces. Add the puffed rice and blitz until you have a coarse crumb. Season with the salt and store in an airtight container.
  4. Bring a small saucepan of water to the boil. Add the egg and boil for 8 minutes, then cool in a bowl of iced water. Peel the egg, then separate the white from the yolk. Discard the yolk, finely chop the egg white and set it aside.
  5. Remove the green outer leaves from the Chinese cabbage. Tear the white and yellow cabbage heart into small pieces – you will need about 1½ cups of cabbage for the salad. Wash the cabbage and dry well.
  6. Transfer the cabbage to a bowl with the watercress and 2 tablespoons of the miso dressing and toss gently to combine. Taste and add more dressing if necessary.
  7. Arrange the dressed cabbage on a plate and scatter the diced nashi and egg white over the cabbage.
  8. In a separate bowl, lightly season the crabmeat with the remaining miso dressing and salt to taste. Strew the seasoned crabmeat over the salad and season with plenty of the nori powder.
