Jasmin Queen


Serves: 4



  • 6 mini cucumbers
  • 2 tsp. salt, to drain water


  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. chili oil
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. red chili flakes
  • ¼ tsp. ginger, ground
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp. green onions, thinly sliced


  1. Wash the cucumbers and cut off the ends.
  2. Place cucumber in between chopsticks. Make several 45° cuts down the length of the cucumber. Flip the cucumber over and then make several 90° cuts, trying to follow the same cuts as you did on the other side. Repeat until you have done this to all the cucumbers.
  3. Sprinkle the cucumbers with salt and gently massage into them. Let sit for 5 minutes (no more than 10). Rinse with cold water and set aside.
  4. Mix the sauce ingredients in a separate bowl.
  5. Add cucumbers to the sauce.
