MINT & CUCUMBER SHARBAT

Sharbat syrups are very popular drinks in Iran. Often made with distilled water of herbs or flowers, one of my favourites was made with mint syrup and fresh grated cucumber with a hint of vinegar, like a shrub. Of course, these are alcohol-free but add a slug of gin or vodka if you are so inclined. These drinks are often served at room temperature in Iran, but I prefer mine with a little ice.

SOY-GLAZED SALMON WITH SPICY SOUR CUCUMBER & SEAWEED SALSA

Cooling cucumber salad with a good amount of heat is one of my favourite things on hot summer days, especially if you can manage to chill it in the fridge for a couple of hours. Don’t worry if you don’t have time, as it is delicious as it is. There is always a jar of Lao Gan Ma chilli oil in my fridge and it’s perfect to use here.
