Korean fish-sausage jeon (소세지 부침) is one of the most popular lunch box side dishes from the good old days. When sausage was introduced to Koreans for the first time, it was big hit. Since then, Koreans started to make their own fish sausage like this. Later, we started eating ham, and ham eventually replaced fish sausage in different kinds of Korean food such as kimbap, salad, jeon, etc. Slowly this fish sausage became less popular and is an old fashioned food now. Sometimes I miss this dish. It brings back my school day memories, and it still tastes good to me.
