@EatingNiagara @foodsnark @Food52Hotline Yes! I Googled "cooked cucumbers" to see if it was normal; evidently, it is common in Asian cuisine
There's a recipe on here under genius recipes I think called spicy cucumber salad where you cut your cukes into strips and make a spicy chili/pepper oil and pour the hot (temperature) and spicy oil over the cukes. They pop and sizzle a little with the hot oil...love that recipe
Thank you! I will hunt it down. Sounds amazing.
