Over the weekend, J and I went to visit our friend who just had a baby. As she was talking about all the food she can have now, she mentioned that she was craving 회덮밥 (hwe dup bap, or rice with leafy veggies and sashimi) the most.
On our way home, J said, “Great, now I’m craving 회덮밥.”
So we decided to stop at the grocery store to get the ingredients!
First, wash and chop up your greens. You can use almost any leafy greens – it’s all up to you! That night, I just grabbed a salad pack:
I usually add some sesame leaves too, but I forgot to pick that up. I also added some radish sprouts:
Next up is the fish. Some people add several kinds of sashimi but I usually only go with fluke. Since fresh fish is key to this dish, I never get pre-packaged or frozen fluke. At grocery stores with large seafood departments, you can pick the fish you want and ask them to filet it for you.
Cut the fish into small pieces and set it aside.
Then take a bowl of cooked rice and drizzle some sesame oil on top. You may also choose to add some sesame seeds.
Place your greens on top of the rice, then add the fish.
Add red pepper sauce (the same used in my 돌솥비빔밥 recipe), mix it up, and enjoy!
sounds great! other optional add-ins: asian pear, masago roe, furikake. miso hungry now.
