Marinated Carrot Shreds

Sorry there aren't too many in the picture. We were almost done eating them when I remembered to take a picture.

9 oz carrots
2 tsp salt, or to taste
1 tsp coriander (cilantro), chopped (I used dried, but fresh is better)
1 tsp garlic shoot, shredded or 1 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp chili oil
1 tsp sesame oil
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp vinegar (I used rice vinegar)


1. Wash and peel the carrots. Cut into 2 3/4 inch (7 cm) shreds. (Or, put on shred setting and run through food processor.) Mix with 1 tsp of the salt and place in a sieve or strainer so the excess water drains off.

2. Rinse the salt off and squeeze off the excess water. Place in a bowl with the coriander and garlic shoot. Add the chili oil, the remaining 1 tsp salt, the sesame oil, sugar and vinegar. Blend well and serve.
