1 bitter melon

1 tablespoon salt

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1 teaspoon chili flakes

1 teaspoon honey


1. Halve the bitter melon and scrape out the fluffy membranes and seeds with a spoon. Slice the melon as thinly as you can manage.

2. Sprinkle the slices liberally with salt and set aside to drain for 15 minutes to half an hour or until the bitter green juices are extracted.

3. Squeeze the slices dry in a towel.

4. Place bitter melon in a mixing bowl and add the rest of the seasoning. Mix well and allow to marinate for about half an hour before eating. Chill well.
