Instructions

  1. Rinse the cucumber and slice it in half. Then chop both halves up into bite-size bits. Pour the vegetable oil in a large non-stick pan or wok and place it over high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the cucumber. Quickly stir fry the cucumber for 2 minutes. Then take the pan off the heat and add the lime juice, the fish sauce and a pinch of sugar and garlic powder.

  3. Stir the cucumber well again. Then pour the cucumber in a large bowl and let it chill and marinate in the fridge for 10 minutes. Stir regularly. Right before serving, add the peanut butter and chicken stock or coconut milk to a wok or non-stick pan and place it over medium heat.
