Cooking fried cucumber salad:
Step 1: prepare the cucumber.
Choose a strong long cucumber. Rinse it and carefully remove all the skin. Then divide the peeled vegetable into halves and scoop out the seeds from each, leaving only the pulp from the cucumber.
Divide the peeled cucumber halves in half each half so that the quarters come out, and after each piece cut into 3-4 more stripes.
Immerse the cucumber straws in a deep plate, add salt, mix gently and leave on 20 mint for vegetables to give juice. After that, the cucumber needs to be rinsed several times with water and dried with a disposable paper towel.
Step 2: prepare the rest of the ingredients.
The cloves of garlic need to be peeled and cut into very small pieces. Peel the skin from the ginger root, and then chop it as finely as garlic. Chop a little chili pepper with a knife. Rinse green onion feathers and cut into small rings.
Step 3: prepare the fried cucumber salad.
Heat a pan and 1 tablespoon of oil in it. Add green onions, slices of garlic, chili pepper and ginger root. Stir all the time while frying the ingredients over high heat for 30 seconds.
Then immediately add cucumbers, honey and Hoisin sauce or teriyaki to the pan. Fry over high heat for 30 seconds, then add water and continue cooking until it has completely evaporated. Remember to constantly stir the contents of the pan.
When the water evaporates, remove the pan from the fire, pour the fried cucumber salad with sesame oil, mix and serve.
Step 4: serve the fried cucumber salad.
Serve the fried cucumber salad immediately after cooking, while it is still hot. Of course, it’s difficult to call it an independent dish, it’s more a spicy snack, which can spur appetite. You can also serve a salad of fried cucumbers along with fried fatty meat, the combination of tastes is incomparable.
