Les Crâniés Aquatique Culinaire à la Corée (see also FISH IN KOREA)
Inspired by the fish counter at our local supermarket (see 11.229 Gwangeo Hoe), this is part of an on-going series to explore varieties of fish available in Korea and methods of preparation.
Whereas godeungeo in general is one of the most, if not the most most, common/popular fish in Korea, the jaban (salted) type is the most common/popular subset. The salting is very light, so it doesn’t alter the fundamental flavor or texture of the fish, just provides built-in seasoning. Even if light, the salt preserves the fish to let it keep longer in the fridge. Typically broiled (as here), or pan-fried. Served as a centerpiece protein with steamed rice and soup, plus kimchi and other banchan. Also works as anju for soju.
