Very interesting as well as tasty! Only change I made was to halve the oil. It is nice to find a different way to prepare cucumbers. The chili and basil really compliment them.
We liked this one an awful lot. Needed to be careful not to overcook the cucumber so that it's still crisp, but it was delish! A definite keeper. Thanks, Jen!
Yummm! I did not use a fresh red chili, I used a dash and I mean a dash of dried red pepper flakes. I have cooked a similiar recipe for years and this one is outstanding! I also use the pan fried cuke as an ingredients in other salads, on the top as a garnish also.If you make shredded cabbage,carrot soup with chicken or vegetable broth add this prepared recipe right before serving or as a garnish on salads with chicken and chinese hard noodles.
