Sesame Shrimp with Smashed Cucumber Salad



Smashing the cucumbers helps them absorb more of this absurdly delicious dressing. And the sesame shrimp? Don't even get us started. So good. Quick how-to video is waiting for you down here.

FYI: The word "cucumber" comes from the Latin name "cucumis." Three hundred years ago, the English called it "cowcumber." Cucumbers originated in India between the northern part of the Bay of Bengal and the Himalayan Mountains (from University of Illinois Extension).
