Easy Recipe : Home Made Wasabi Cucumbers

I am a snacker (not slacker!). But snacking can be unhealthy if you binge on the wrong type of food.
And so, I am sharing this healthy and refreshingly tasty crunchy side dish recipe with you! 

This is wasabi cucumber pickle! It can be an appetiser or side dish. I snack on it like tidbits while watching the news too. ;p

Ingredients required:

2 Japanese cucumber (select those that are thin and straight)
1.5 tablespoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
5 to 8 cm of wasabi paste or 3 to 5 tablespoon of wasabi powder


1. Wash and dry the cucumber

2. Place your cucumber in a sealable bag, along with the sugar, salt and wasabi paste, then lightly mix. I mix by rolling the cucumbers gently on the tabletop. 

3. Remove as much air as possible before sealing and leaving to marinate in the refrigerator.

3. Leave overnight, then remove the cucumber and slice them! Enjoy! Alternatively leave to pickle for 2-3 days for even more tasty cucumbers!

Tadah!! It's just so simple! Hope you enjoy!

  1. Nice! I have wasabi powder but no use to it, this sounds perfect. But isn't it better to slice before marinating and how long can u keep this?

    1. Hi Jen,

      Thank you for dropping by! Yes! You can slice it before marinating too! I think the taste will be very strong. Just that I prefer it the other way. I cut abit to test, if the wasabi is too strong I can rinse abit before slicing. ;) and after marinating, there will be alot of water.

      Can keep up to 5 days but will be quite soggy by then.
