Minnie demonstrated two Korean dishes in the Caring Place Community Kitchen. Minnie has been very active in the two community kitchens she attended and she has been sharing her Korean inheritage in both the kitchens. She is certainly a great addition to the community kitchen.
The first dish Minnie shared with us is a Korean Seafood Rice. She told us that this dish is her specialty. The Seafood Rice is served with blanched soy bean sprouts and seasoned with a home-made sauce.
I noticed that Minnie always brings her Korean pressure rice cooker to cook rice. The pressure rice cooker is not the regular rice cooker which most of us are familiar with. The Korean style pressure rice cooker gelatinize the rice starches more completely than other style cookers, resulting a more glutinous and marginally more nutritious cooked rice. In South Korea Cuckoo is the top-selling brand of rice cooker.
- Oysters, clam, mussels, salmon, fish roe (egg), shrimps, squid, crab meat and any other shell fish
- Soy bean sprouts
- Sesame oil, salt & pepper
- Soy sauce, sesame oil, toasted sesame seeds, minced garlic, finely chopped onion or green onion, sugar, Korean red pepper powder (optional)
Minnie used the oysters from a tub and not those with the shell on. The tub below costs $7 plus.
