How to make Korean Cucumber


Usually when if I am scanning through recipe websites I skip right through anything that does not contain meat - and if you are like me - STOP! I IMPLORE YOU!!

This really is worth it. I have never had much time for the plain old cuc', but for some reason serving it up like this just does somethng for me.

  1. Hack a bit of cucumber off (as much as you want to make, really). Slice it in half and deseed it.
  2. I thought it would be best to julienne the thing and spent a couple of hours traipsing around both Tesco's and Ikea the other day but for the life of me could not find a utensil to do it. So slice the cucumber up real thin.
  3. Once you have enough cucumber, put it in a small pot and splash some rice vinegar on top.
  4. Throw a small splash of sesame oil in as well.
  5. Whilst it's sitting in the vinegar, slice up your hot chilli real thin. Get rid of those seeds. If you're like me, then you'll probably need to be pre warned not to wipe your nose/clean your ears/poke yourself in the eye during this stage. Wash your hands after slicing that chilli.
  6. Serve with the chilli slithers and a sprinling of sesame seeds.
