Italian Sauteed Cucumber

Easy and trendy.

Recipe By: Mizue (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/32)
Serves 2 Prep: 5 min Cook: 10 min

Ingredients

Cucumber 1
Olive oil 2 tbsp
Garlic 2 cloves
Bacon 50g
Salt & pepper a pinch each
Balsamic Glaze as required

Method

1
Cut the cucumber into quarter lengthwise and smash with a rolling pin.
2
Cut each quarter in half, then again into fingers.
3
Put the olive oil in a frying pan and add the crushed garlic. Cook on a low heat.
4
When you begin to smell the garlic, add the shredded bacon and fry until crispy.
5
Add the cucumber pieces, and season to taste. Continue to fry.
6
Serve onto a plate - the secret weapon is the balsamic glaze over the top. It's now ready to eat.

Tips & Note

Watch out for the cucumber water spraying out when you smash it, so wear an apron.
If you de-seed the cucumber first, the final result will be less watery.
