Traditional Korean Miso Wrap Recipe
Posted by Dr. Ben Kim
Updated on March 3, 2009
The star of this recipe is a paste made out of den jang (Korean version of miso), a touch of hot chili paste, and sesame oil. Koreans call this paste sahm jang. If you can't find den jang, feel free to use miso as a substitute.
1 tablespoon of den jang or miso
1.5 teaspoons of sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon of hot chili paste
1. Mix ingredients together in a small bowl until uniform. Sahm jang is typically served in its own bowl at the center of the table, with a large plate of fresh romaine lettuce or red leaf lettuce leaves, and a bowl of rice for each person.
2. Place a small spoonful of rice in the center of a leaf of lettuce, add a small dollop of sahm jang to the rice, wrap closed with the outer portions of the lettuce, and enjoy!
Two people typically need a whole head of romaine lettuce leaves for one meal.
