Crunchy Sesame Seed Cucumbers with an Extra Twist

Crunchy Sesame Seed Cucumbers with an Extra Twist

For that one extra side dish. A great accompaniment to grilled beef. The secret to bringing out the tasty cucumber flavor. I updated the amount of ingredients.

Ingredients: For 2 cucumbers

Cucumbers
2
Salt
2 pinches
○ White sesame seeds
1 tablespoon
○ Kombu tea
About 1/2 teaspoon
○ Sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon

Steps

1. Wash the cucumbers and evenly peel about 4 strips lengthwise to make a striped pattern. Chop off the ends.
2. On a cutting board, sprinkle salt on the cucumber, then press down while rolling them with your palm. This will give the cucumbers a nice green color.
3. Wash the cutting board and cucumber, wipe excess water with a paper towel, and cut into 1-1.5 cm thickness.
4. Put the cucumber slices and the ○ ingredients in a plastic bag and rub evenly. It's ready to serve.
5. When making these for packed lunches, use (Recipe ID: 1413228) to remove the excess water content.
6. When preparing ahead of time for a BBQ, toss with salted kelp powder right before serving.
