    3. Put cabbages in the salted water and let them steep for about 3 to 4 hours.
    4. Take them out, wash them in running water and drain water.
    5. Meanwhile, in a big container, mix ground red pepper with 1 cup of water.
    6. Add shredded radish, and mix well until radish turns reddish.
    7. Cut parsley and green onion into 2 inch pieces.
    8. Chop garlic, chilli pepper and ginger well.
    9. Add everything together with roasted sesame seeds and mix well.
    10. Add shrimp sauce or fish sauce, 1 tbsp of salt, and 1 tsp of sugar.
    11. Take the quarters of cabbage, apply mixture between every leaf. Use the outer leaves to wrap the quarters so that the mixture doesn't seep out.
