  • 1 1/2-2 cups Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Daikon Radish, peeled & sliced crosswise roughly 1 1/2 lbs
  • 1/4 medium White Onion very thinly sliced crosswise
  • Kosher Salt to taste
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper to taste


  • Heat up olive oil in a skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat until it begins to simmer.
  • Turn your heat down to low and add in the radish and onion slices, seasoning with a bit of salt as you layer them.
  • Stir occasionally until tender, silky smooth and fully cooked (40-60 minutes, depending on size and thickness). Feel free to slice them ultra thin and cook them longer for crisp edges!
  • Drain the radishes and onions once cooked (you can discard the onions if you wish) and enjoy!


The amount of oil you need depends on how thin you slice your radishes; so start with the lower amount and you can always add more (or cook in batches).
