Delicious, juicy, not quite usual, with very simple ingredients! For lovers of new flavors, I suggest a salad with crab sticks, but in an unusual design. Thanks to cabbage and cucumbers, the salad turns out very juicy, with a crunch. And fried potatoes make it incredibly flavorful.
Crab sticks should be taken chilled. If you have frozen ones, let them thaw well, then blot them on paper towels as hard as possible.
(weight, which in stores in bulk in trays, just do not fit, there is only a smell of starch from the promised fish scraps!)
Chop sticks at an angle, 5-7 mm wide.
To fry crab sticks, use a non-stick frying pan.Pour vegetable oil into the pan so that the bottom is all closed, heat it well.
If you don't have a mesh cover, cover with a paper towel if it will "shoot" hard, but if you get them well wet the sticks don't shoot.
Sticks DO not need to be mixed, so as not to peremyat!
Just put one layer of sliced cubes, fry until Golden, turn gently with a wide spatula on the other side. Fry on the other side.
Remove on paper towels to glass the oil.
Divide the cooled ones if they stick together. Of course, a lot depends on the quality of the product, but we are preparing for such a wonderful holiday, for ourselves and loved ones!
Cut the potatoes into plates 5-7 mm thick, then into cubes of the same width. Dry with a towel or napkin.
and fry in the same pan with oil where the crab sticks were fried. Put the potatoes on a towel to remove excess oil.
Cucumbers cut into the same cubes as the previous products.
If the Peking cabbage has wide leaves, cut them in half lengthwise at first, then cut them into strips 5-7 mm wide.
Put the cabbage in a bowl, add a little salt, add a pinch of sugar, and knead. Add the cucumbers and mix. Before assembling the salad, drain the resulting juice.
To make the sauce for the salad.
Potatoes and cucumbers like sour cream, so we will fill the salad with it.
In sour cream, add finely chopped dill and spices-paprika, hot red pepper, garlic powder. Salt to taste. Mix everything well.
Green onions are not chopped.
Put in a serving dish:
1. Half a mixture of cabbage and cucumbers,
2. The next layer is potatoes,
3. Another layer of cabbage with cucumbers,
4. Now crab sticks,
5. And corn.
6. From top to pour the sauce over the entire surface of the salad and sprinkle with green onions.
Fried potatoes, fried "fish", cucumber, green onion, Yes with sour cream!
This is the taste of this salad!
The salad is incredibly delicious, juicy and rich, with a minimum number of products.
