Korean Fried Chicken
Ingredients – Serves 2:

- – 500g chicken wings
- – Large chunk of ginger, finely grated
- – 50g cornflour
- – Vegetable oil, for frying
- – Sesame seeds and sliced spring onion, to serve
For the Sauce:
- – 6 tbsp dark brown sugar or palm sugar
- – 2 tbsp gochujang (Korean chilli paste)
- – 3tbsp of cider vinegar
- – 2 tbsp soy sauce
- – 2 large garlic cloves, crushed
- – Small piece ginger, grated
- – 2 tsp sesame oil
- 1. To make the sauce, put all the ingredients into a saucepan and simmer gently until syrupy, so around 3-4 mins. Take off the heat and set aside.
- 2. Season the chicken wings with salt, pepper, and the grated ginger. Toss the chicken with the cornflour until completely coated.
- 3. Heat about 2cm of vegetable oil in a largepan over a medium/high heat. Fry the chicken wings for 8-10 mins until crisp, turning halfway. Remove from the oil and place on kitchen paper. Leave to cool slightly (around 2 mins).
- 4. Reheat the sauce and toss the crispy chicken wings in it. Tip into a bowl and top with the sesame seeds and sliced spring onions.
Ingredients – Serves 4:
- – 4 spring onions shredded
- – 2 red chillies, seeds removed
- – 2 limes: juice and zest
- – Small head of napa cabbage (or regular white cabbage), shredded
- – 1 grated carrot
- – 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
- – Black sesame seeds
- – 1 tsp of sea salt
- – 1 tbsp tomato paste
- – 1 tsp of honey (optional)
- – 1 tsp tahini (optional)
- – Handful of chopped coriander
- 1. Place shredded cabbage, grated carrots and chopped chillies in a bowl and sprinkle with salt.
- 2. Leave on a side for 10 minutes then squash it with your hands, you can be quite vigorous. Stop when cabbage is slightly softer and resembles cooked cabbage rather than raw.
- 3. Add the other ingredients, mix well and chill for at least 15 minutes before serving.
Variety is key here and consider the size of your bowl – when you serve the dish, you will half fill the bowl with rice and then arrange the different meat and vegetables almost in a clock face, around a fried egg positioned centrally.
Ingredients – Serves 2:
- – Carrot, Broccoli, Green Beans, Red Pepper, Cabbage, Cauliflower etc
- – Sesame oil
- – Soy Sauce to Marinade the pork or tofu
- – Rice 60g per person uncooked
- – Spring onions
- – 2 eggs
- 1. Slice all your vegetables into thin strips or similar, you want to line these up in your bowl. The slower cooking veg, like carrots, should be sliced thinner. Set aside.
- 2. Boil your rice as per instructions but add some sliced spring onion and black sesame seeds into the uncooked rice. Once cooked, drain, and keep warm.
- 3. In medium frying pan, heat teaspoon of sesame oil, then cook first your pork, it will only take a couple of minutes – set aside; then carefully cook your vegetables picking the slowest cooking first. Keep separate in the pan, and once cooked, set aside.
- 4. Finally fry two eggs – you should be able to use the same pan throughout – add a little extra oil if it is drying out.
To Serve: Half fill bowls with the rice, then position the cooked meat and vegetables around it. Finally place egg on top, sprinkle with any garnishes – chilli flakes, spring onion etc
Drizzle your bibimbap sauce (see below) on top and enjoy smashing the runny yolk into all the ingredients with the fiery sauce bringing all together.

- – 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
- – 1 tablespoon apple vinegar or any oriental vinegar

- 1. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl, set aside. Check the spice, if you want it a bit fiercer, add more paste or some chilli flakes
