P.S I apologise for the rather bad photos.
serves 2 to 3 as part of a Chinese meal
2 continental or 6 Lebanese cucumbers, peeled, seeded and sliced
250 g of medium prawns*, peeled
2 garlic cloves, chopped
dash of oyster sauce
dash of soy
dash of rice vinegar
salt and white pepper to taste
* I used crystal bay prawns again, they are extremely salty for a reason so do rinse them properly beforehand.
Prepare the cucumber - I first peeled the cucumbers using a normal peeler, later I used a corrugated peeler to create the lovely patterns.
Have all the ingredients ready.
Saute garlic and prawns with a little oil , remove and set a side.
Add cucumber slices to the same wok, fry for 5 minutes then return the prawns to the wok. Add seasonings and continue to cook til cucumber is tender.
Serve immediately as part of a Chinese meal.
