I totally tripped out just watching them.

While in Korea, My aunt was going to cook dinner for us at her house. Trying to figure out what to make was resolved by going to the open market and finding this fresh Skatefish and fresh Chicken!

The merchant will chop it up for you if you ask.

We got the main ingredients and went home to start the cooking! Here’s my aunt in the apron, who cooked us a wonderful meal, her mother in law and my mom.


First the Skatefish is seasoned with Gojuchang Sauce, Vinegar, Sugar, Sesame Seeds and tossed with sliced Cucumber, Watercress and Onion. My mouth was watering just watching my aunt mix it up!

Now it’s time for to make the Spicy Korean Braised Chicken, Dak Do Ri Tang. My Aunt pulled out some hot chili peppers from her freezer.


She got a big pot and added the Chopped up chicken with the bone and skin still on, Hot Chili Pepper Powder, Gochujang sauce, sliced Onions, chopped fresh Chili Pepper, Potatoes and Carrots


and just let it simmer in all it’s goodness..then top off with sliced Green Onions.


My uncle came home with a case of our favorite spirits!  SOJU! and we also enjoyed this Plum Wine.

If you didn’t already know… Koreans LOVE to eat and feast! You can never have too much food so they also ordered some Fried Chicken that you can actually have delivered to you. It’s a good thing we don’t have this where I live, or I’d be in trouble and 50 pounds heavier!

and Dukbokki, Spicy Stir-Fried Korean Mochi.


As you can see… we had a HUGE FEAST and lots of spirits! What an awesome dinner! I was so grateful for another amazing meal !
