Spicy Shrimp - (매운 새우 볶음)

 

IMG_9642
Back in the day, I used to frequent a certain cafe in K-town that had this spicy shrimp dish. The cafe is no longer there, but I figured I could try and replicate the dish. First wash and peel about half a pound of shrimp.

In a small bowl, mix together to following: 1TB red pepper paste, 1/2TB red pepper powder, 3/4TB honey powder, 1TB rice wine, 1/4TB minced garlic.

Turn up the heat in a wok and add some sesame oil. Add the shrimp and cook until almost done.

Remove the shrimp from the heat and clean up the wok.

Add another 1TB of sesame oil to the wok and then throw in whatever vegetables you prefer. I used onions and mushrooms.

Next, add your spicy mixture and keeping mixing around.

Throw in the shrimp and mix well.

Keep cooking until the shrimp is all done!

Asian Style Potato Corn Salad - (감자 샐래드)

Almost every Saturday the MR, Munchkin and I head to the local farmer's market. Today, I saw that the yellow corn looked particularly fresh so I made sure to grab some.

I bought four ears of corn and steamed them. Munchkin promptly polished off three all by himself. =P

Wash and peel 3 small white potatoes.

Quarter them like this...

And add it to some boiling water. Let it boil for about 20 minutes or so until they are soft.


IMG_9335
Grab a masher and start mashing! I didn't measure today (too busy), but I added about 6-8 TB of mayonnaise (maybe more).


IMG_9314
Speaking of mayonnaise, this is the BEST when making this salad.

I then took the lone leftover corn and cut it up like so.


IMG_9339
Mix everything together!


IMG_9340
Throw in some parsley (roughly 2 TB).


IMG_9346
And you're ready to serve!

You can eat as a side dish at the table OR you can use it in a sandwich. I made both the MR and Munchkin a corn/potato sandwich (cut off the crusts!) and they ate it all very quickly! That's all! More updates will be coming this week.

I will be making a clear ojinguh gook tomorrow along with a spicy shrimp main dish. Stay tuned!
