Korean Kimbap….Our Way :)


Crab Kimbap

Korean Kimbap….its a quick snack and can be bought in your local Korean grocery store, well I know that they sell them at my local Korean grocery! They are like Sushi rolls,  but they are the Korean version! They are light and tasty! The filling can range from imitation crab meat, beef, chicken or vegetarian…it also contains cucumber, Korean pickled radish, a strip of scramble egg.  As a dipping sauce I combine soy sauce, Korean pepper flakes, rice vinegar and sesame oil…its gives the kimbap a salty, tangy, sweet kick. I will put the recipe for the sauce and the kimbap below!

Kimbap  (this recipe is for 10 sheets of seaweed)

  • 1pkg of Seaweed wrappers
  • 3cups cooked short grain rice
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 large & long cucumber
  • 10pcs Korean pickled radish
  • 10-20pcs of imitation crab meat (10pcs if u like thin meat or 20pcs if u want meaty kimbap)
  • 1tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper flakes (optional)
  • bamboo mat (we used a silpat!)

DIRECTIONS

  • In a microwaveable safe bowl, add the vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper flakes. Heat on medium for 1min or until the salt and sugar have dissolved.
  • Season the rice with the vinegar mixture and let it cool! HOT RICE WILL MAKE THE WRAPPER TOO SOFT TOO FAST AND MAKE UR KIMBAP GO KAPUT!
  • Once the rice has cooled (about 10-15min, warm rice if ok!) take one wrapper at a time and press the rice to one ends of the wrapper.

  • At the end of the wrapper, closest to the edge of your mat, add the crab, the cucumber, the egg and the pickled radish, and start rolling. First roll with your hand, to secure the filling, then roll the kimbap the rest of the way by using the mat! Once rolled, tightly squeeze the roll to make sure that it’s secure and the filling won’t fall out.

There you go! You have made your very first kimbap! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! Now for the sauce, don’t worry this is easy! The fills 10 wrappers, but this can feed a huge party! We filled 3 tupperwares of  long bowls. This recipe would be get for a party, potluck, or just to have frozen for a quick snack down the road.

Our Kimbap Sauce

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp Korean pepper flakes

Directions this is going to be the hard part!

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl!
  2. Mix!
  3. Serve!

Below is the gallery for the kimbap! I hope you enjoy it!

I have been gone for a month or so, being 17wks pregnant for the 2nd time ni my life, isn’t going as easy as it did before with my first child. This pregnancy is a tiring one! I go can fall asleep at the drop of a hat, pin, dime …pretty much I am tired all the time! I feel like cookingand baking but my body it telling me to sit down and sleep! But recently, aka this morning, I have been feeling not as tired as I usually wa. Will I feel like this all week?…I doubt it! But I feel like this now, and I feel like korean food. All week, I have been eating Mexican food…at least I can say this baby is making me crave the good stuff!

TODAY, I will be going home and making KIMBAP…I will post the recipe for this Korean treat. I am promising myself and you all this recipe, because it pains me that I havent made a post in over 1 month…GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! LoL.
