An Easy Korean Fish Soup Recipe
This soup is light and refreshing. The flavor is from dried pollack which is a great ingredient if you enjoy making Asian soup recipes. This is a very economical soup and you can make quite a lot of it for less than five dollars. The following Korean fish soup recipe is known as a hangover remedy or cold remedy in Korea and you can add some chili pepper to it if you want to give it an extra kick. Atlantic pollack is a strong-flavored white fish. It is an economical alternative to haddock and cod and it has been one of the most popular fish in Norway for many years. This fish is becoming steadily more popular, as cod and haddock are becoming overfished. You can find it at a lot of grocery stores as fresh filets or frozen ones.
Ground pollack is used to make recipes like popcorn fish and fish fingers. This fish is slightly gray in color and it is used to make fried fish balls in Norway. It is traditional to split, salt and dry one-year-old pollack in The Orkney Islands, Scotland. The texture then becomes woody. You can also salt and smoke this fish to give it a salmon-pink color. The fish is sold like that in Germany (with the name “sea salmon”).
The following recipe calls for dried, shredded pollack, although you could replace it with another kind of dried fish if you like. The strong flavor of pollack is good in this recipe though and the scallions, sesame oil, garlic, and egg are delicate-flavored ingredients but they really go nicely with the fishy taste.
- 1 cup dried, shredded pollack, in 1 inch strips
- 5 cups water
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 2 or 3 scallions or Chinese leeks, in 1 inch strips
- 2 beaten eggs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Stir fry the garlic and fish in the sesame oil over a moderate heat in a pot for a couple of minutes. Add the salt and water and bring the mixture to a boil.
- Turn the heat down to a simmer and let it cook for 10 minutes. Blend the beaten egg and scallions. Drizzle the scallion mixture into the soup, stirring it gently as you go.
- Take the soup off the heat after a couple of minutes and season to taste. Serve hot.
Serving your Korean fish soup recipe out of a traditional Asian soup pot or tureen adds to its appeal, as you can see from the picture. Many fish soup recipes are very easy to make and you simply need to combine the ingredients and simmer the mixture to tenderize everything and allow the flavors to blend. You can serve this simple soup recipe as an appetizer or as lunch or supper. It is also nice served as a hot beverage in the afternoon. Bread is often served with soup and you could serve bread with this one or stick with the Asian theme and try prawn crackers instead or just serve the soup as it is, without an accompaniment.
