For this recipe either use pre-prepared crab meat or cook your own crabs and remove the flesh. The latter is time-consuming and requires a pair of shell-crackers, but it’s worth it as the meat will be that much better. The combination of normal and sweet potatoes offsets the saltiness of the cucumber and works extremely well. It is important to rinse the cucumbers thoroughly or they may be too salty. Grate the potatoes just before you need them as they discolour if left for too long.
