Fried Asian Cucumber Crinkles

1 Asian cucumber, cut into slices

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

2 tsp salt

2 tsp paprika

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp sugar

freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons olive oil, for frying

Cut the cucumber into slices. Place the cucumber chips into a small bowl, and pour the soy sauce over them, tossing to coat. Set aside. In a shallow dish; mix the flour, salt, paprika, garlic powder, sugar, and pepper. Dip the cucumber slices into the flour and toss, making sure the slices are evenly coated. Heat the oil in a small skillet, over medium heat.
When the oil is hot, gently place some of the cucumber slices into the oil. Don't crowd the pan with too many. Fry for about one minute, then use some tongs to flip the slices over. Cook the second side for about another minute. Keep an eye on them making sure not to let them burn. They will cook very quickly. Put the fried cucumber slices on a plate lined with paper towels, and let drain. Fry the remaining cucumber slices, then let drain.
 Sprinkle with a little bit of seasoned salt and sugar. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
