Smacking Good Food At Chengdu Sichuan Restaurant, and these appetizing Japanese Cucumber were one of the dishes I'd tried. Though simple, it was extremely tasty. I knew instantly I just gotta try making this appetizer some day.
3 Japanese Cucumber
1 tbsp minced Garlic
1 tbsp Extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp Ginger paste
1 tsp Sesame oil
½ Soya sauce
½ tsp Salt
- Rinse and cut cucumber into equal slices. Marinate with ½ tsp salt. Remove seeds from chilli and chop it up.
- Heat oil and saute garlic till fragrant.
- Stir-fry cucumber with chopped chilli, ginger and seasonings on medium heat for about 2 - 3 mins and you're done! * Do not cook for too long or you'll lose the crunch.
- You can even serve your Japanese Cucumber Appetizer (蒜泥黄瓜) chilled!
