What is hwe dup bab you ask? It is one of my favorite dishes: a Korean sashimi rice bowl that includes sliced sashimi, vegetables & a spicy chili pepper paste. You can get creative and add whatever ingredients you desire but the basic ingredients you need are: rice, a variety of sashimi, red leaf lettuce, sliced cucumbers & carrots, perilla leaves, seaweed, sesame oil & chili pepper paste. You can choose your favorite sashimi- I used tuna & salmon. The sashimi package also included some salmon roe & sliced radish so it was perfect! For veggies, instead of carrots, I used Japanese gobo root. You can also add sliced red onions, red cabbage, sprouts. I have seen some recipes that use sliced apples or pears too. Depending on how spicy you like things, you can add as much chili pepper paste as you want. It is so good, I want more! 🙂
