  • 300 grams wild green onions, or green onions
  • 1 inch ginger minced
  • 8 cloves garlic minced
  • cup Korean hot pepper powder
  • 6 tablespoon fish sauce
  • ¼-1/2 cup water


  • Rinse the green onions, and cut off the bottom portion with the roots;  remove any outer skins and then you can cut the remaining portion in half if desired; if using regular green onions, you can cut them into 2"-3" pieces

  • Add the ginger, garlic, Korean hot pepper powder, fish sauce, and water to a mixing bowl, and mix all ingredients well.  Start with ¼ cup water, and add additional water if you prefer a saucier kimchi 
    Ingredients for pa kimchi
  • Add the green onions to the spice mix, and mix well using your hands.  You may want to use some gloves at this point! 
    Spice Paste for Pa Kimchi
  • Store the pa kimchi in an air tight container.  This will keep for a few days, but I don't think it will last that long!


This dish is both spicy and salty.  Use a little less Korean hot pepper powder and fish sauce if you prefer a "milder" kimchi.  Enjoy this with rice, or as an accompaniment to spice up almost any dish!
