Braised Cucumbers

This is a good side dish for fish and white meats.


1 cucumber (about 1 lb)

1 tablespoon butter

Dill, parsley or spring onions, chopped.

Salt and Pepper


Slice the cucumber in half lengthwise. If the seeds are large, scoop them out with a spoon. If the seeds are still small and tender, you can leave them in. Slice the halves in half again, lengthwise, then chop the quarters into 1/2 inch segments.

Heat butter in skillet over medium heat. Add cucumbers, cover and cook them until tender but still crisp, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with dill, parsley or chopped spring onions.
