  • Preparation Steps
  • 1

    Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, then repeat with each half until you have a number of long strips. Now slice the other way to dice the cucumber. Place in a salad bowl.

  • 2

    Add the shallot, green onion, chilli/red pepper, and coriander to the cucumber (keep back a little extra coriander to garnish the salad).

  • 3

    Combine the dressing ingredients together in a cup, stirring to dissolve the shrimp paste. Tip: that the dressing will taste pungent now, but will be perfect once it is on the salad.

  • 4

    Pour the dressing over the salad and toss well.

    To serve, scoop or slide salad onto a serving platter or place in a serving bowl. Top with the ground/chopped peanuts, plus extra coriander. If desired, garnish with a slice of lime. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 3 hours.*
