Koreatown Adventures…

kimchi-fried-rice

Sigh…another weekend comes to an end. But what a great 3 day weekend we had- thank you President’s Day:)  We were all over the city with Char the last few days, soaking up every ounce of this glorious spring-like weather. We concluded the weekend with a nice home cooked meal, after a little adventure to Koreatown this a.m. to pick up some items Nick was craving. From there came above’s inspiration; kimchi fried rice. We paired it with some lightly panko-crusted grouper. This dish was DELICIOUS. We cooked the fish similar to how we cook our healthier panko chicken parm, so I didn’t go into detail below, but you can find that recipe here.

Kimchi Fried Rice: serves 3

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger (grated) or 1 tbsp dried ginger
  • 1.5 cups kimchi, chopped
  • 1/4 cup scallions, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp each salt + pepper

Instructions:

  1. Cook the white rice with the ginger;
  2. In a medium skillet, saute the garlic with the sesame oil over low heat, until just soft, approx. 3 mins;
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients, mix everything together thoroughly, increase the heat to medium. Stir infrequently, allowing the rice to slightly burn.
  4. Add the scallions for the last minute of cooking. Garnish with a little more scallion and serve.
