Expert Tips

  • Hothouse cucumbers, sometimes called English cucumbers, have fewer seeds than regular cucumbers. Regular cucumbers will work, though. Just cut them in half, and scrape out the seeds before slicing.
  • We tested this recipe with Thai Kitchen™ red curry paste. It’s worth noting that different brands come with different heat levels, so we recommend you use less or more depending on the brand’s heat level and your own preferences.
