Many people have asked me what kind of Korean appetizers I would recommend. Serving appetizers is not common in Korean traditional cuisine and Korean mothers likely say to their children: “don’t eat any sweets or snacks before dinner! If you eat them, your stomach will get full before eating your main meal.”
But you will see Korean restaurants serve side dishes after taking orders from their customers. While waiting for the main dish to be served, customers eat the side dishes.
When I lived in Korea, avocados were a totally unfamiliar imported fruit usually sold in the basement of huge department stores. I remember they were tremendously expensive. I think the fruit is more and more familiar to Koreans these days.
I usually eat an avocado by itself with a spoon after cutting it in half and putting some soy sauce in the hole where the pit sat. I sometimes use avocados in California rolls or tuna gimbap. And the ginkgo nut skewers are so easy that I don’t even need to explain them here. Check the video!
Avocados and ginkgo nuts are very healthy fruits, and you’re going to love these appetizers.
