FISH in KOREA

CULINARY AQUATIC CRANIATES à COREE

Inspired by the fish counter of our local supermarket (see 11.229 Gwangeo Hoe) – every fish counter in every medium/large supermarket in Korea offers nearly the same selection – this recurring series on Give Me This Day explores food fishes that are available in Korea and how they are prepared.  The fish are ranked according to general perceptions of popularity, as determined entirely unscientifically by the writers of GMTD:

  1. Godeungeo (고등어) (chub mackerel) (11.302 Godeungeo Jorim) (12.246 Godeungeo Jaban)
  2. Jogi (조기) (croaker / yellow corvina) (11.334 Jogi Gui)
  3. Galchi (갈치) (cutlassfish / hairtail) (12.036 Galchi Gui)
  4. Domi (도미) (snapper) (12.043 Pan-Seared Snapper in Garlic Truffle Cream Sauce with Paprika Mash)
  5. Samchi (삼치) (Korean seerfish / Spanish Mackerel) (11.325 Samchi Gui)
  6. Daegu (대구) (cod) (11.315 Daegu Maeun Tang)
  7. Gajami (가자미) (flounder / sole) (12.004 Gajami Gui)
  8. Cheongeo (청어) (Pacific herring) (12.006 Three Herrings and a Loaf of Bread)
