Ingredient Tips

hot tip
Play it safe: Where there's fire, there's heat. A high-performance pair of grilling gloves is the best protection against burns.

Directions

1
Cut off the green end of the leek, taking care not to cut off too much, so that you can place the whole stalk on the grill. Grill on a high heat on all sides until the outside of the stalk is completely blackened.
2
At the same time, peel the papaya, halve lengthwise and remove the seeds. Then cut one half into approx. 1.5 cm thick strips and grill on a high heat. Allow to cool afterwards and cut into small pieces.
3
Grill the garlic and then cook in indirect heat for a short time. Grind the ginger and chilli to a paste in a pestle and mortar and add to the papaya. Add a little salt and sugar to the mixture and allow to seep for at least 30 minutes. Then squeeze the limes and add the juice.
4
Remove the blackened outer leaves from the leek and season with salt. Serve together with the papaya kimchi.
