There's an Error in This Recipe

July 26, 2015
I haven't tried this recipe because there is an error in it. Dark sesame oil is NOT for cooking -- especially sauteing/frying. It burns at rather low temperatures. Dark sesame oil should only be used as a flavor additive -- generally after the dish is finished cooking and right before serving. My guess is that they meant light sesame oil. If I ever try this recip I'll saute the cucumbers in canola, corn, or some other generally bland oil and add a small amount of the sesame oil to the miso, vinegar, water, etc. mixture.
