Cucumber is my favourite vegetable. I love it because no matter what I was craving, it would do the trick. I used to eat it as a fruit whenever we ran out of fruits. My friends thought I was really weird at first, but sooner or later I would convert them into cucumber lovers. I mean there is nothing else that I could think of to replace my love for cucumber. It is the perfect afternoon snack. If I was thirsty, I would just eat a cucumber. The refreshing juice quenched my thirst better than any water or juices. When I wanted a salty snack, I would cut up the cucumber into cubes and add a pinch of salt and eat it like a salad. When I want something sweet, I would wash it and just take a bite from the whole cucumber. The crunchiness was just refreshing and surprisingly sweet by itself.
When I saw this recipe, I thought it looked so good already. When I found out that the sauce was cucumber based, I was all over it! When I tested it, I found the sauce a little too herb heavy so I did some minor adjustments to bring out the cucumber in the sauce without losing the herb flavours.
This fish came with such fancy presentation, it is perfect for entertainment! I am sure your guests will be impressed by the look, smell and taste of this fish!
- The sauce needs to be chilled so you can do it up to 24 hours in advance.
- The mashed potatoes can also be prepared in advance and be refrigerated for up to 48 hours. When it comes time to serve, you can either serve it cold with the hot fish, or if you like your potato warm, just heat it up in the microwave before putting on the cucumber sauce and fish.
