For the sweet and spicy cucumber salad
Thinly slice coriander stems until you have about 2 tbsp and place in a large bowl. Coarsely chop remaining coriander; set aside for serving. Add shallot, garlic, chillies, tamarind concentrate, lime juice, and fish sauce to bowl with cilantro stems and mix well. Add cucumbers and tomatoes, season with salt, and toss until everything is nicely dressed. Transfer salad to a platter and top with reserved chopped coriander, then fried shallots and peanuts.

Spicy, funky, and sweet, this side dish plays on the vibrant flavours of Thai papaya salad with the unexpected addition of tamarind. Our spicy cucumber salad is as visually exciting as it is delicious. An ideal salad to serve with a premium lightly battered fish fillet. In the case we match our salad with Pacific West’s crumbed whiting.
