Defrosted salted cucumber
Slice cucumbers larger than the intended serving size, to compensate for shrinkage.
•Keep the skin and seeds together, but split the cucumber open to allow proper salting and to expose the seeds.
•Salt the cucumbers generously, then place them individually on ice for 20 minutes.
•Freeze the cucumber overnight, to be defrosted when needed. This process gives the cucumber a unique 'cooked' texture and a flavour similar to oyster.
