Pickled Sweet-and-sour Cucumber

The "pickling" can be done in minutes rather than days but the more time you have, the better the result.

ingredients

serves 6 - 8
1 slender cucumber, about 30 cm (12 in) long
5 ml (1 tsp) salt
10 ml (2 tsp) caster sugar
5 ml (1 tsp) rice vinegar
2.5 ml (1/2 tsp) red chilli oil (optional)
few drops of sesame oil

method

1. Halve the unpeeled cucumber lengthways. Scrape out the seeds and cut the cucumber into thick chunks.

2. In a bowl, sprinkle the cucumber chunks with the salt and mix well. Leave for at least 20 - 30 minutes -longer if possible - then pour the juice away.

3. Mix the cucumber with the sugar, vinegar and chilli oil. Sprinkle with the sesame oil just before serving.
