Notes about this recipe

  • Breadcrumbs on March 25, 2013

    p. 36 - A tasty, subtly flavoured dish. I don’t think I’ve ever cooked cucumber before so this was a first for me. This dish was simple to prepare and produced a very nice salad that I’ll definitely make again. mr bc was a big fan of this dish. The cucumbers retained their crunch but seemed to be infused somehow w the subtle flavours of chillis and the smoky Sichuan peppers that had sizzled in the oil. Delicious.
