  2. Add the radish pieces to a large thick bottomed pot with. Spread them out evenly, by hand.
  3. 1 large onion or 2 medium sized onions (about 400 grams), cut into ¼ inch thick slices and  place over the radish.
  4. Cut 3 stalks of green onions into pieces 1 inch long, and chop 2 green chili peppers and 1 red chili pepper. Set aside
  5. Place the mackerel on top of the pieces of radish
  6. Make seasoning sauce in a bowl by mixing ½ cup soy sauce, ¼ cup hot pepper flakes, 2 tbs sugar, ⅓  cup garlic cloves minced (12 cloves), and 1 tbs of minced ginger.
  7. Pour the seasoning sauce over the fish. Pour in 1 cup of water along the edges of the pot.
  8. Close the lid and bring to a boil over high heat for 20 minutes.
  9. Open the lid, tilt the pot, and use a spoon to push aside the mackerel and radish to make empty spot for the broth to well.
  10. Scoop some broth from the empty spot and pour it over top of the fish and radish. Repeat several times.
  11. Add the chopped green onion, green and red chili peppers.
  12. Close the lid and lower the heat to a simmer for 30-40 minutes, until the radish is cooked thoroughly. The radish will absorb the soy sauce based broth, so it will look brownish and a little translucent when cooked nicely.
