gimbap

leave a comment »

I like to travel with my tastebuds so while visiting Korea my food choices are local. Gimbap is Korea’s version of sushi. The toasted seaweed (gim) is sometimes brushed with sesame oil and sprinkled with sesame seeds. Instead of using vinegared rice as the Japanese do, steamed rice (bap) is mixed with sesame oil and seasoned or sweetened according to taste. Vegetable and meat ingredients are seasoned and stir-fried or pan-fried. Other fillings could include canned tuna, ham, cheese and luncheon meat.

We tried these spicy pork gimbap. Served with kimchi and pickled radish, of course.
