1
Make the pickling liquor by placing the sugar, rice vinegar and soy sauce in a pan over a low heat. When the sugar has dissolved, remove from the heat and allow to cool
2
While the liquor is cooling, preheat an oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Place the peanuts in a small ovenproof dish and roast for 15–20 minutes until golden. Transfer to a pestle and mortar and roughly crush
3
Cut the cucumbers in half lengthways and place in the pickling liquor. Cover and place in the fridge to pickle overnight
4
The next day, mix the crème fraiche with the miso (you may need to add a splash of water if it’s too thick)
5
To serve, use a blowtorch to char the flat side of the pickled cucumbers until blackened. Halve them lengthways again, then place 3 sticks on the side of each plate. Spread miso on the other half of the plate and top with the crushed peanuts
