I have to be honest and say that i was unsure how this would turn out the first time that i made this. That said, it has been added to the site, because it’s just that good.
The brown butter cucumber actually end up being more like a warm relish that you can add on top of whichever protein you’re cooking. The cucumber soaks up all that flavor from the browned butter, making every bite savory. It’s a great low carb way to have a delicious meal. We’ve made this to go with chicken and with fish like mahi or swordfish.
