Cucumber pickles – goma shio kyuri

This is a very quick and easy way to prepare pickles with cucumber.

First time we tried it was in an isakaya in Omiya, Saitama province.

Ingredients:

1 package of snack cucumbers (roughly 250 gr)

2 tbsp rice vinegar

2 tbsp sesame oil

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 ziplock bag

 

Cut the cucumbers in quarters and then again half the length.

Put them in a Zip lock. Add the other ingredients and close the bag leaving as much air as possible out.

Massage well and let rest at least for a couple of hours (ideally overnight or a couple of days).

You are now ready to enjoy!
