Japanese Tobiko Salad Recipe - help!!

I've made this salad a bunch of times and have had it at random Japanese restaurants, but I was trying to look online to see what 'twists' people have put in it, and couldn't seem to find a recipe on it.

It's essentially: cucumbers, crab, tobiko (roe) mixed together with some kewpie mayonnaise.

I was wondering if anyone here has made it before, and what they've done to it.

At my favourite restaurant, they put in slivers of octopus to give it a different texture, and it also tastes a bit different, although I can't figure out what!

  1. At one of my favorite restaurants, they make use raw salmon, tuna, yellowtail, tobiko, seaweed salad, some squid and spicy japanese mayo. One of my favorites.

    1. Add some hijiki and a little slivered shiso to give it a kick. I try to put shiso in all Japanese salads.

        I've had it with raw scallops and spicy mayo, with tobiko on top. Is that spicy mayo always kewpie mayo?
