How to make this easy and quick kimchi recipe

Step 1: Prepare the napa cabbage

Rinse each napa cabbage leaf separately well. Drain well.

Hold the napa cabbage leaf and make slits at the base of the leaf. Tear down the rest of the leaf to make long strips. Place all strips in a large enough bowl.

 

Step 2: Salt the napa cabbage

Sprinkle salt over the napa cabbage. Let it soak in the salt for about 5 hours. At the 2.5 hour mark, mix the cabbage leaves and allow the top layers and move to the bottom.

 

Step 3: Make the sweet rice powder mixture

Make the sweet rice powder mixture by combining water and the sweet rice powder into a small pot. Put the small pot over high heat. Continue stirring to make sure it doesn’t burn. Once it reaches a boil, remove it from the heat. Allow it to completely cool.

Let’s make the spicy mixture. Add the cut green onions, red chili pepper powder (gochugaru), fish sauce, brined shrimp, garlic cloves, ginger root, sugar, and sesame seeds into the rice powder mixture. Mix together well. Set aside for later.
