You really want to anger the Yokai? The Bakemono? You wanna piss off the Kami, you go right ahead, but no thank you.

No thanks, unless it's onion rings, i'll take grilled over deep fried for vegies any day.

Although, now that I mention it, I'm pretty sure cucumber classifies as a fruit.

I could maybe see it with Persian cucumbers. Or if you salt them generously and let them sit for 30-60 minutes before grilling.

I definitely prefer grilled to deep fried (except onion rings) if we're talking about traditional US methods. But I can eat the shiat out of some pakoras.

hard to go wrong with onyon rings, but they ent half-bad just simply charred on a grill-pan.

can't find the exact pic I want, but here are some grilled onions supporting seared ahi, with toasted black sesame seeds, tamari, lanzhou noodles, bit of seaweed flake, and fake-wasabi (y'know, who doesn't keep a 1kg bag of FD&C-colored horseradish powder in their freezer)

Agreed, grilled onions are delicious as well.

I still like an old fashioned cucumber summer salad.

Peel and slice two large or three medium cucumbers and a sweet onion, and put them in a bowl mixed with about a Tablespoon of salt for half an hour.

Place the veggies into a colander and let them drain in the sink for another half hour.  (This salting and draining removes a lot of bitterness from the cucumber and keeps the salad from getting all runny in the fridge later)

Thoroughly rinse the excess salt off the veggies and leave them in the sink to drain a bit more while you make the dressing.

In a bowl mix:

1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayo
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon dill
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon black pepper

Combine with the veggies, and place everything in the fridge to chill for at least an hour.

Yeah, for sure. One of my absolute favorite vegetarian dishes is mujadara (spelling varies considerably), which is spiced rice and lentil pilaf mixed with deeply caramelized onions (and the couple tbsp of onion-infused oil left over from that process) and topped with a garlic yogurt sauce. Here's a random GIS image with the onions about as dark as I get mine:

Botanically, perhaps, but since we're talking about food, I'll go ahead and continue to refer to Squash as a vegetable since it is usually eaten and prepared in a manner similar to vegetables.

shut up, claire. PLEASE shut up.

if you are buying veggies specifically for the grill just buy young zuchs/yellow squash.

put the cucumbers in a simple salad of cucs, sweet/red onion, good garden or sweet cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered, and a super simple vinegar/water/salt/sugar/pepper/touch-​of-neutral-oil dressing (i sometimes throw in a little garlic powder and/or aleppo chile flakes).

but i must admit, i used to make a mild/sweet chicken curry recipe with sliced persian/english cucs cooked right in. it was a version of Country Captain that i randomly added extra seedless/seeded cucs to and found it good. it's wonderful topped with a plain yogurt and more cucumber sauce.....

oh lawd, now you have me absolutely drooling. anything even vaguely resembling raita/raitu or tzatziki is always welcome.

one weird trick is to run both cucumber and onion over the coarsest side of your grater. plus, then easily squeeze out the resulting cumberbiatch+onyon liquids thru' a cheesecloth/towel/whatever (and save it for martinis!!)

Lately, I've been addicted to this Palestinian salad that's quite similar to what you listed, except: replace red onion with scallions, use a good olive oil instead of a neutral oil, add a thinly sliced serrano, and add a finely diced lemon (skin and all, minus the ends and seeds).

I find that pickling cucumbers work the best in terms of flavor and texture for kimchi. Overly large cucumbers can be spongy or extremely bitter. I haven't used baby cukes.

Don't farking do this. We had a year when our cucumbers came in like a big bag of dicks, and we tried a whole variety of dishes. The worst, by far, was any method that required cooking the cucumbers. It's awful and nobody likes it.

Two better alternatives: Quick Chinese pickles: Cut into quarters lengthwise, and then in 2-inch lengths. Pour on black vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, Sichuan peppercorns, garlic and red pepper flakes, all of it to taste. You can add a little sugar if you like. Do this two hours, at most, before dinner. They will not survive to dessert.

Kimchi pickles: Half cucumbers lengthwise. Scoop out seeds. Cut into inch lengths. Salt and put into a strainer for a half hour with sliced onions or green onion lengths. Rinse everything. Put into a bowl with a paste of Korean red pepper, a shiat-ton of garlic and ginger, soy sauce, miso, salt and an apple. Add a couple habaneros if you like it hot. Stick it all into a jar with an airlock and leave it on the counter for a couple days, or until it stinks up the kitchen properly. Put it in the fridge and eat it on everything.

also, from your link -
"If you buy head-on shrimp, use the heads for another purpose, such as making seafood broth, or deep-fried as a snack."

oh, hells to the yes! one of my favorites in the before-times was of course ama-ebi, and you always ask the place, "do you serve the heads too?" - it's never on the menu, they never charge you extra for it, you just get a nice plate of crispetty-crunchetty deep fried skrimps haids. mmmmm.

I mean, you can always take the shells home to make stock for bisque?

I'll eat the tails off regular boiled or fried skrimps, and, agreed, it is still much like chitin/keratin/whatevs of fingernails. but the deep-fried haids, mmm, it softens everything. lol, once or twice, I even got Rosita to try an antenna or three, and, oddly, she did not hate it. (also now I have her addicted to shrimp-chips)

the haids themselves are very mineral-y, because guts. and I am not someone who likes e.g. lobstah "tomalley" or crab-guts, but the skrimps heads I am somehow barely ok with?

I d'nno, it's like the corollary to One True Scotsman - if'n you can deep-fry it, it's edible. corollary to the corollary: you can deep fry anything.
