Korean Pickled Cucumber!

This is an easy yet delicious Korean side dish that everyone can make at home!




Ingredients


1 cucumber, diced/sliced

1 tablespoons salt


1 spring onion, chopped

1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 teaspoons vinegar

2 teaspoons sugar

1 tablespoon red pepper flakes (gochugaru)

1 clove of garlic, minced (add more if you love garlic!)

2 teaspoons sesame seeds

1 teaspoons sesame oil


Directions

STEP 1

Cut your cucumber into desired shapes. We recommend cutting thicker in size for extra crunch!



STEP 2

Add the salt to the diced/sliced cucumbers and mix well, let it sit for at least 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes, wash the cucumber thoroughly, pat them dry and transfer them into a big bowl.



STEP 3

Add sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, sesame seeds, sesame oil, crushed garlic, and korean red chilli pepper flakes (gochugaru) into a small bowl and mix well.

Add the mixture to the cucumber and make sure every slice is covered with the sauce!


STEP 4

It is now ready to eat but we recommend keeping the cucumber in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving for more flavour!


Serve it as a side dish with rice or noodles! Have fun!
