Wasabi Seafood Salad

Total Time:
37 min
12 min
25 min

4 servings

  • 2 fresh lobster tails
  • 12 large shrimp, deveined
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated wasabi, or 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish mixed with 2 teaspoons wasabi past
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 pound lump crabmeat, picked over
  • 4 cups mizuna or tatsoi lettuce, or 2 cups mesclun plus 2 cups watercress
  • 4 plum or 2 large tomatoes, sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 ounces daikon sprouts, for garnish
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Fill a medium bowl with water and add ice. Add the lobster tails to the boiling water and boil until just cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. With tongs, transfer the lobster to the ice water; retain the cooking water. When cool, drain the lobster tails, crack the shells, and remove the meat. Quarter the meat and set aside.

  • Return the water in the pot to a boil. Add the shrimp, and cook until just done, 3 to 5 minutes. Check the shrimp after 3 minutes; they must not overcook. Drain the shrimp and transfer immediately to the ice water. When cold, drain on paper towels and peel.

  • In a small bowl, combine the wasabi, soy sauce, lemon juice, and sugar and whisk to blend. Whisk in the oil to make a light emulsion. In a large bowl, combine the crabmeat, lobster meat, shrimp, mizuna, and tomatoes. Add the dressing, season with the salt and pepper, and toss to blend.

  • Divide the salad among 4 plates. Garnish with the daikon sprouts and serve.
