Asian Sauteed Cucumber

This is a quick side dish, great with just about anything. Just a few ingredients and a light saute and it is done in minutes.

Great with BBQ, grilled fish or just about anything. I love that it is simple and has a clean refreshing flavor. Warm or room temp is fine for this.

Instructions

  1. 1First shred the carrots and prepare the cucumber. Don’t peel. Cut lengthwise in thin strips and then in 2" pieces
  2. 2In a large pan (non stick) for stir fry, toast the sesame seeds just for a minute or two until lightly brown. Remove and set aside.
  3. 3Then heat the oil in the same pan. Add the scallion, ginger, cucumber, soy and cook a couple of minutes. Then add the carrot and lemon juice, salt and pepper. Toss in the sesame seeds and remove from the heat. Serve warm NOT hot or room temp. A great simple side
