Recipe By: Iggy_Joester (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/46)
Serves 2 Prep: 25 min Cook: 5 min

Ingredients

Cucumber 1/2 or 1
Salt 1 tsp
Water 1 tbsp
Soy sauce 1 tbsp
Mirin 1 tbsp
Ginger 1 thum

Method

1
Score the cucumber diagonally in several places to a depth of 1/3. Turn over the cucumber and do the same on the other side but this time in the opposite direction.
2
Cut the cucumber into bitesize pieces and soak in salted water for 20 minutes.
3
Add all the sauce ingredients together in a bowl with the shredded ginger and mix together.
4
After 20 minutes, squeeze out the moisture from the cucumber and soak it in the sauce at Step 3. Mix well, then keep in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
5
Done! Thanks to the scoring, the cucumber absorbs the sauce very fast. If you like it hot and spicy, sprinkle with some chilli flakes.

Tips & Note

Additional note for Step 1: if you score in the same direction on both sides of the cucumber, it will cut it into pieces, so make sure you cut in a cross (×).
