Karl’s Quick Spicy Cabbage (Kimchi)

I am making a salmon teriyaki with ponzu sauce and I like to have a variety of pickled side dishes with any Japanese style meal.  One of the dishes I made used the ponzu sauce and another I made with just the yuzu skin (the citrus part of the ponzu sauce). I wanted some contrast between my side dishes, so I decided to make a quick spicy kimchi. Real kimchi  should be fermented for days or even weeks, but I wanted some of the flavor with none of the waiting.

Tsukemono means “pickled things.” The Japanese make many different pickles in many different ways, from a quick pickled cucumber that in ready to eat in one hour to Takwan— whole pickled daikon radishes that take months to ferment. Most Japanese meals include some form of pickle.
