Lightbulb Quick Cucumber Kim Chee

1 Hot House or Long English Cucumber, diced skin on
1 Tbsp. Coarse Salt (I use Sea Salt)
1 Tbsp. Noh brand Kim Chee Spice

Place the diced Cucumber into colander, I use my salad spinner for this recipe.
Sprinkle with the Salt, stir and leave for 15 minutes, no longer than that though.
Rinse the Cucumber well; drain, this is where the spinner comes in handy. Give it a whirl and continue.
Place the Cucumber a bowl (or the bowl of the spinner);
sprinkle with Kim Chee spice to your taste, its hot, so watch out.
Give it a good stir; cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours,
all day is better.
This makes a great side dish.

I find it here in the middle of the desert at the Asian market that I frequent, but I've seen it in Cali at places like Marukai, Ranch 99... anywhere that sells products from Hawaii, which are plentiful in California, Oregon, Washington and the Las Vegas area.
I've seen it sold on Amazon and found this there too:
Hawaiian Electric: Kim Chee Chicken
If you like spicy, this would be wonderful!

I fell in love with kim chee when I lived in Hawaii. Only very rarely can I find any in the grocery store.

I'm fairly sure the seasonings aren't available here.

Do you buy it online? I couldn't find any information about the prices and shipping costs.

Try Amazon
http://www.amazon.com/NOH-Korean-Che.../dp/B0001IOSCW
If you order from Noh directly, the S&H cost from Hawaii will be more than the product...
try a Google search too
after seeing that recipe from HawaiianElectric, I want to make that Kim Chee Chicken as "Hot Wings" using drumettes, very popular in Hawaii.

Thanks to the Navy, we lived in military housing near the naval base at Pearl Harbor as well as in Honolulu. We were there for 3-1/2 years. It was quite awhile ago, starting in September of 1964.

What I remember most is the wonderful ethnic foods, Hawaiian, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, etc.

I worked at PACEX headquarters in downtown Honolulu, and had a wonderful Chinese girlfriend who knew where all the little wonderful places were to eat. We had a good time going to lunch every day, and when my husband was overseas, we went to many nice little restaurants for dinner.

It's always nice to make friends with the locals.
That's what I miss most, is the food, well the people too.
