Build the crab salad in the middle of the dish first, then carefully pour the soup around the crab and top with the black sesame seeds to mimic the watermelon seeds! Simple, refreshing, and delicious, what more do you need for a beautiful summer meal? I use an Ateco Round Mold to build the salad.
I first experienced this dish at The Country Club Restaurant in the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas. It was so unique that I asked for the recipe and to my delight the chef shared it! There are some differences in my preparation, but the flavor is the same!
