I love cucumbers and am thrilled to have a new recipe to use them -- it will come in handy when the garden yields come in. My only change was to add one minced red chili, and therefore reduced the pepper flakes to just a sprinkle.

Incredible. I used peanut oil instead of canola, added 1/2 a cup of peanuts, and instead of red pepper flakes, used 2 tsp of thai fire sauce. Wonderful. Never thought of using cukes in stir fry, but now I will. Oh, ,I used equal parts chicken and pork too. yummy. This would almost be good if you cooked the meat, then just added it to the remaining ingredients and chilled like a salad.

A very nice recipe to use when you are over-run with cucumbers (like I was this summer!). The cucumbers remind me of water chestnuts.

I made this for my family some time ago except I didn't peel the cucumbers. It still came out alright and they loved it. This is nice and quick to make. Now that I'm a pescetarian living with a vegetarian roommate, I'm going to attempt to make this with tofu.

I used peanut oil, 2 cucumbers (seeded), 1 lb of shrimp (should have removed shells before cooking), 1/2 tsp dried ginger, 5 green onion stalks and forgot the red pepper. It was still great. Since I am not a great cook, I appreciate recipes that can tolerate forgotten ingredients and miscues.
