This time, I would like to share an easy Korean recipe. It is usually served as one of those many side dishes on the table. Have you watched Korean drama based on history called "Jewel in the Palace" (Dae Jang Geum)? If you don't then see this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dae_Jang_Geum. In this story, she was trained to cook in the palace and later on due to her perseverance, she became a first lady physician. You will notice that in this drama or any Korean drama, you will observed that there are many side dishes on the table. In every meal, there are always soup, main course, side dishes (10 or 12 kinds or even more) and the deserts.
20 Lettuce leaves (cleaned)
1-2 Tablespoons of soy sauce
1 Tablespoon of minced garlic
3 Tablespoons of Spring onion (chopped in circles)
1 Tablespoon of Sesame oil
1 Tablespoon of Sesame seeds
½ Tablespoon of White sugar
1 Tablespoon of korean red pepper powder (Kochu-karoo)
1. Wash and clean the lettuce leaves and drain them.
2. In a mixing bowl or plastic container, add the lettuce, soy sauce, and the rest of the ingredients.
3. Mixed them with your hands (put disposable plastic gloves) and ready to serve.
Note: If there is left over of your lettuce salad or you don’t wanna eat it right away, remember to put them in the refrigerator so it won’t spoil too soon.
