Cucumber and Shrimp Salad


2 English cucumbers
1 medium red onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 lb small cooked salad shrimp
For the dressing
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup rice vinegar
2 tbs soy sauce
3 tbs sesame seeds, toasted
2 tsp red pepper flakes, more if you like it spicy
6-8 radishes, chopped
lettuce leaves for serving
Fresh dill for garnish
  • Cut the cucumbers lengthwise, then cut into crescents.
  • Add to a bowl and salt lightly and mix. Allow to sit for 30 minutes then drain cucumbers through a wire mesh strainer. This will help to remove excess liquid.
  • In another bowl combine the cucumber with the shrimp, red pepper flakes, red onion and radishes
  • Mix all ingredients for the dressing, then pour over the cucumbers. Reserve some of the dressing for later use.
  • Taste for seasoning and re season with salt and pepper if desired.
