Here is another great and simple dish using one of Sempio’s pre-made sauces. This time, it is a spicy fish dish. This specific dish calls for hair-tail, however you can use mackerel instead. The fish and radish absorbes the sauce which gives them great flavor. You will love the fact that you simply pour the sauce on the fish and vegetables to get a delicious main dish, which will taste similar to a homemade dish. You can purchase the sauce in big Korean grocery stores or Amazon. I highly recommend you to try it, especially if you want to cut down on your cooking time for daily meals.
Yield: 2-3 Servings
Short Korean Lesson
- GalChi (갈치) = Hairtail
- JeJuDo (제주도) = A county in South Korea
- 14 oz Hairtail Fish (4 Pieces)
- 1 Pack Sempio Jeju GalChi Sauce
- 2 Cups Korean Radish
- 1 Cup Water
- ¾ Cup Onion
- 2 Green Onions
Chop 2 cups worth of Korean radish into big chunks. Slice 1 medium onion into ½-inch slices. Chop 2 green onions into 1-inch pieces. If you can not find a Korean radish, you can use potatoes instead.
Obtain about 14 oz. of hair-tail. Mine was about 4 big pieces of hair-tail. Rinse them once and cut the fins with a scissors.
Place the chopped Korean radish on a wide-bottomed pan.
Put the fish on top of the radish.
Pour 1 cup of water into the pan.
Shake 1 pack of Sempio Jeju hair-tail sauce, and then pour it to the pan.
Cover the lid and cook for 15 minutes on medium-high.
Add the chopped onion into the pan. Cover it again and cook for another 10 minutes on medium.
Occasionally, pour some of the broth over everything, so that all the ingredients will get enough flavor.
10 minutes later, add the chopped green onions and cook for 2 minutes. Turn off the heat.
Serve this with rice and other Korean side dishes. You can use this delicious food for wrapping with leafy greens or boiled cabbage. Wrap the fish, cooked radish, and rice with some ssamjang (a special seasoned soybean paste for wrapping). It tastes good. Try it someday.
