Momofuku quick salt picklesFirst of all, thanks David Chang for allowing me to steal this recipe. It´s the easiest pickle recipe I ever tried and they are very versatile and can be served on their own, to ramen noodles, tacos, pulled pork, burgers, you name it.
In the original recipe there is only cucumber but I usually add a fennel as well since I think it goes great with the cucumber and is excellent for pickling, so let´s go!
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
Cut the vegetables in slices and combine with the salt and sugar, let sit for ten minutes, adjust salt and sugar to taste, you can rinse if they are to salty or sweet. Serve within a few hours.
