Seaweed rice rolls with tuna

Chamchi-gimbap 참치김밥

It’s a delicious korean food that I know you will love.

When I was in America 10 years ago, I made gimbap for a potluck party. One Ukrainian lady was eating my gimbap, but peeling off the “black paper.” She thought that it was real paper, and she only wanted to eat the delicious stuff inside!

I make 2 kinds of gimbap in this video, so be sure to watch until the end for special bonus footage.

Ingredients:

Directions (2-3 servings):

  1. Prepare about 5-6 cups of cooked rice in a large bowl
  2. Make your mixing sauce by mixing up ½ tbs sugar, 1 ts salt, and 1 tbs of vinegar until the liquid looks clear
  3. Mix rice with the mixing sauce and stir it evenly. Set it aside for now.

Prepare a large plate to arrange all ingredients for gimbap

  1. Make seasoned tuna flakes
    1. Open a can of tuna and remove the oil or water. Put it on a heated pan and drizzle some sesame oil over it. Toss it and cook it for 2 minutes
    2. Add 1 tbs of soy sauce, ½ tbs of sugar, 1 clove of minced garlic, and 1 ts of ground black pepper.
    3. Keep stirring for another 3 minutes.
    4. Turn off the heat and add 1 chopped green onion, 2 ts of sesame oil and 1 tbs of toasted sesame seeds.
  2. Place 3 yellow radish pickle strips on the plate.
  3. Place 3 pieces of crab meat on the plate.
  4. Slice an avocado and place it on the plate.

Let’s roll gimbap!

  1. Place a sheet of seaweed(“kim”) on the bamboo mat and evenly spread a layer of rice in the center of it.
  2. Place 2-3 spoons of seasoned tuna flakes on top of the layer of rice. Add a yellow radish pickle strip, some avocado, and a red crab meat strip.
  3. Roll it up gently using the bamboo mat.
  4. Remove the bamboo mat and cut the roll into pieces about 2 cm thick and place it on a plate

*tip: prepare a wet cloth or paper towel to wipe the knife while cutting, it will make it slice easier.

Fillings for Kimchi gimbap

If you want to make kimchi gimbap, instead of tuna gimbap, mix the following ingredients and use them instead of tuna:

½ cup of chopped Kimchi, ½ tbs of hot pepper paste, 1 ts sugar, ½ tbs of sesame oil, ½ tbs of sesame seeds, and 1 chopped green onion.

    The first time I made kimbap, I discovered that a REALLY SHARP knife is critical. I love it and oddly enough, my 12 year old son loves it too. I’ve made it with canned tuna and avocado and also with imitation crab/fried egg/cucumber/carrot.

    Maangchi!! I have a question about the seaweeds. When I purchased seaweeds only for making korean sushis, they were bit dry. I decided to make it then seaweeds turned out to be not to soft to chew. Do I have to roast them first in order to make it?

      You can either roast the gim or not before making gimbap (kimbap). I usually roast gim slightly before making gimbap. Good luck!

    Maangchi,
    I love the korean tuna in the kimchi sauce that my local Korean market used to sell. They said that the FDA no longer allows it to be sold in the U.S. I’m not sure about any of that except that I can’t find it anywhere any longer. Do you have a recipe on how to make your tuna spicy and yummy like the canned version? Thanks! Mika

    I live for kimchi fried rice, so when I make the kimchi kimbap can I use bacon or cooked pork belly? Or is it best to eat with just the kimchi?

    You have the best recipes. Ever since my father passed away. A few years back. It’s been really hard finding places that make korean foods like my dad did. My mother’s not korean so she rarely makes korean food anymore. Thank god I found your site, now I eat Korean food everyday and its just like my dad used to make and more. Thanks sooooo much for these recipes.

    Hi Maangchi.

    Can I mix sushi rice with the normal long grain rice to get them sticky? I have a lot of long grain rice left and don’t wanna waste it.

    Hope to hear from you soon!

    I have made this twice now. The first time, I used japanese nori and I did not have the pickled radish (I used home made mild kimchi instead). It was good, but the nori was too chewy. I found korean roasted seasoned laver sheets and used those today. What a difference! The texture is altogether different – much more delicate. I also found pickled radish but it was sweeter than I expected so I used kimchi again. AWESOME. Thank you for the inspiration to try something different! I don’t like sushi, but I LOVE kim bap!

    Posted July 29th, 2011 at 4:16 am | # |

    @Jane–I don’t think there is any difference, but you can prepare the rice different. If Japanese sushi takes sugar and vingar in their rice, ususally Korean gimpa doesn’t have to have sugar or needs for vingar. This version is different from how my mom makes it. I would advise anyone to stay away from Korean market sushi. The market over here puts fish cake in their gimpa and it’s gross. I had to pluck them out, and will never buy gimpa from them. I only bought it because I didn’t feel like making gimpa because it can be a long procees the way I make it lol. Whoever taught these auhjumas how to cook needs to give them better guidences. They need to improve their Kimchi and Kkak Do Gi (Radish Kimchi) better too.

    You can add raw fish. Some gimpa are made with bulgogi, galbi without the bones lol, hot dogs, spam. You can add spinach (misspelled), carrots, eggs with green onions, dashi (little bit mix with the eggs), little bit of japanese vingar, black pepper etc.) and make it like a egg pancake and cut it to make strips. You can make thin carrot sticks and fry it with black pepper and salt (I omit salt out of my food because salt not good for you).

    Roll the way you want Korean or Japanese style. If you want the gim (seaweed)showing out or inside, it doesn’t matter the taste will still remain the same. =]

    Just to double-check – all the ingredients should be cold, right? You have to wait for both the rice and the tuna to cool down before putting the kimbap together and rolling it?

    Hi Maangchi,

    This was another recipe of yours that I made. It was really great! Loved it. I am looking forward to checking out the other fillings to make the kimbap but so far this tuna one is a winner with my family.

    I also featured this in my blog at:

    Kimbap is the best preparation I used to make especially when we have picnics. Since avocado is a seasonal fruit, I use ripe mangoes as they are always available whole year round. My recipe only include crabs. So, for next time I would like to try with tuna as well. How about that? I got another recipe from you. Thanks a lot. Really you are a great help Maangchi. Your column is something that I have been spending the whole day, making notes and copying your recipes for my file.

    The tip about wiping the knife with a wet paper towel really works. I was a little worried when I started cutting it and it fell apart. Then I checked your blog and saw the tip, and it worked well. I use a sharp knife and I cut very slowly in a saw-like fashion. Cleanly-cut kimbap awaits… Thanks again for the recipe, Maangchi!

    Hi Maangchi

    I can never get the amount of rice for one roll of kimbap right. I normally roll the rice with crab stick, cucumber, danmooji and omellete. By the time I finish rolling, it will be as fat as a baseball bat.
    That star-shaped kimbap is awesome – how did they do it?

    Love kimchee kimbap too.

      The Star-shaped kimbap is made normally but placed into a sort of “frame” that you press down and it shapes the log into a star. Its very beautiful but takes a lot of practice because when you press the frame it can cause the kimbap to burst!

    hi Maangchi. your website is making me crazy! i’ve been going on cooking frenzy for the past two days. hahaha. i’ve made 7 different side dishes including the kimchi. i’ve made the grilled mackarel, tofu soup, pork bone soup,spicy pork, cabbage soup…my mom and dad are ecstatic because we’ve been eating lunch and dinner as if we are in a korean restaurant complete with 5 side dishes. lol …im going gaga maangchi! i love you! lol, everything is fantastic.

    with regards to kimbap. what is the difference with the korean kimbap to the japanese maki? can i use raw fish and fish roe instead of the cooked meat? and can i roll the kimbap with the rice on the outside and the meat and seaweed wrap on the inside? will that still be considered kimbap? thank you maangchi! <3

    Hi Maangchi,
    For more traditional Kimbap using beef, egg, danmuji etc. what seasoning should I use for the rice?
    I usually use just sesame oil and salt, is that considered the correct seasoning for traditional Kimbap?
    Thank you!

    hi Maangchi!~
    i was wondering what is in the typical kimbab you see at restaurants?
    i know theres danmu ji and spinach and crab meat
    but is there eggs as well? or is it fish cakes?
    i would love to know how to make the fish cakes if you could
    or do they sell it at korean stores like the crab meat that is the size of the kim =]?

    i love those ones at korean rest. i miss it hehe thanks if you could help ^^

    • Maangchi New York City My profile page joined 8/08
      Posted November 2nd, 2009 at 10:43 pm | # |

      Yes, you can get the fish cake cut into strips for kimbap at a Korean grocery store.
      Traditional fillings for kimbap are cooked ground beef(marinated with bulgogi sauce), carrot, spinach, yellow pickled radish (danmuji), egg… some people use ham,sausage, crab meat.

      I will post more typical Korean style kimbap recipe someday.

    Hello Maangchi,
    I was surfing your site, reviewing all the previous recipes, looking at all submitted pictures. Watching the kimbap and triangle kimbap videos made me decide to make kimbap for my supper tonight. I made tuna kimbap and kimchi kimbap. Round up I ate 4 rolls of kimbap (children style–just bite the roll, not cutting in pieces). I am so full now.

      making kimbap at 7 am and eating at 1:00 pm, it sounds perfect! It will be ok until 4 or 5 pm.

    i love kimbap.,i want to ask if i could replace the danmu ji with another veggies in case it is not available? what veggies would you suggest? can i skip the avocado part?

    thank you.,

      Yes, danmuji ((yellow pickled radish) can be replaced with cucumber.
      Cut cucumber into long strips and add some salt, sugar, and vinegar and mix well. Let it stand for about 5 minutes and dry the each strip with paper towel and use them for kimbap.

    Hi Maangchi,
    I’m trying to make both of the kimbaps for this Sunday. I wanted to know if I could make the ‘tuna powder’ the night before, leave it in the fridge and use it in the morning. Would that take away the taste or would that be fine?
    BTW, I absolutely looooooooooove your site. I’m new to cooking in general and need as much help as I could get. Your video clips are so helpful for a visual person like moi. :)
    Keep up the great work. I’ve told my friends about your site. :)

    hi^^ i really love this recipe! i’m making it for a picnic with my friends, so i was planning to make it the night before. but i tried to put it in the fridge once and the next day, the rice was all hard. is there a way to keep the kimbap overnight other than just leaving it in the fridge? im kinda lazy to wake up in the morning to make it>.<

    thank you so much for all your recipes. i got to learn how to cook the food my favourite korean idols like to eat(:

      All I can say is that you should wake up early in the morning to make kimbap. Otherwise, it won’t be delicious. Rice will get hard in the refrigerator.

        Hi Maangchi

        I like your “KimChi” and “KimBap” video, since the normal rice can use for “KimBap”, I think the rice Chinese used to eat also can right ?

        You replied to others that the best time to make “KimBap” is wake up early to make it. I would like to consult you is that, if I make “KimBap” last night and keep in the container (but not refrigerate it) and bring it the following day to office for my lunch, is it OK ?

        Or after taking it from the container (not refrigerate it) and wrap it with aluminium foil or bamboo sheet (which help to roll the “KimBap”) and then steam it, is it OK ?

        I have made the “KimChi” for my family, quite good taste, will make the “KimBap” on one of the weekend.

        I’m going to view your variety of cooking video soon, and try to make some food from your video.

        Waiting for your reply.

        Thanks & Best Regards !

          that happens to me sometimes when i pull the roll too tight or if the kim gets wet somehow. to make sure the kim stays closed, i only fill it w/bap halfway, roll it, right at the end put tiny dabs of water at the edge and roll it the rest of the way. my mom doesn’t like using water because it can result in tearing so she just puts a tiny bit of rice at the edge of every roll and rolls it all the way up. hope this helps!

          Hi Anne,
          You should probably check how much stuffing you’re putting in-sometimes the sea weed might burst because it’s over stuffed and cannot hold anymore. Have you tried also just rolling with your hands? Sometimes rolling with the mat might add too much pressure-another reason why sometimes the sea week cracks open.

    samita,
    I usually make right amount of the rice with sauce so I never have leftover. Fresh rice mixed with sauce is the best. But you have leftover rice, so reheating it next day sounds good. You can make rice balls and roll them onto the mixture of kim (laver) and sesame seeds powder. Invent your own rice balls! It’s called Joo meok bap (주먹밥)in Korean.

    Maangchi,

    What can you do with the extra left over sushi rice after making kimbap? I have about 2 cups of rice that is mixed with sauce. Can I reheat in microwave and use it next day to make some more kimbap ? If not can it be used in any other way.

    Thanks,

    How about making bibimbap?
    Bibimbap is a very good dish to share with many people and it’s delicious.

    You can prepare all vegetables and keep them in the refrigerator in advance. Be sure to make rice just before serving it. When you serve it, take out all cold vegetables and reheat them using a microwave oven.

    Hi Maangchi!

    I have a problem: My club is participating in a huge fair that our university hold every year in April. We are planning to make Kimbab to sell. We’re going to make the rolls the day/night before, wrap them up individually in plastic wrap, and then hand the whole rolls to people when they buy it. We need to refrigerate it because of food safety reasons. A lot of my friends have expressed concern that the rice will be rock hard if we make it the day before, but I know that we won’t be able to produce as much if we make it the day of on site.

    So, my questions are: Is it okay to make kimbab the day before, and will it taste just fine the next day? Does refrigerating the vinegar-rice change its flavor?

    Also, is the imitation crab meat rather expensive?

    Thanks so much for help! :D

    Tiffany

    Janet,
    That’s a really good question. Actually someone else asked about it and I posted my reply on the forum under rice cake soup. I’m copying and pasting my answer here.

    ..There are 2 kinds of soy sauce that Koreans use: dark soy sauce (“jinganjang”(진간장)and soy sauce for soup called “gukganjang” (“국간장” in Korean)

    Koreans use gukganjang (soy sauce for soup) instead of fish sauce. I’m living in New York , so it’s difficult to make homemade gukganjang (soy sauce for soup). I know they sell it at a Korean grocery store here, but the taste is a little different from the soy sauce that I used to use in Korea.

    I found fish sauce gives the similar taste of well fermented gukganjang. That’s why I use fish sauce (“aekjjeot”: 액젓 in Korean) in ddeokguk. ”

    thank you Janet. Check the forum, too!

    Next time you make kimbap, please roll it tightly, then it won’t fall apart.
    for kimchi kimbap, chop some kimchi and add some soy sauce(not too much)or hot pepper paste, sugar, green onions, sesame oil and seeds. This mixture is very delicious. I use it for my noodle soup,too. After making noodle soup, put this mixture on top and eat it. Or you can make “bibim noodles”with this mixture.

    I use zipper bag.
    Thanks,

    Wow!!~

    Kimbap looks delicious!

    I’ve had a time to make it
    not too long ago… and since
    we had a lot of Kim, my
    friend and I couldn’t stop
    making kimbap.. I thought it
    was a lot, but my whole
    family munched them down.

    I can’t wait to try your
    way of making kimbap,
    cause I think we made it a
    little bit different…

    Thank you for your wonderful
    recipes, they are GREAT!

    I wanted to ask you something
    maangchi, When I was done using
    the Kim we needed, Since the packaged was already open, I didn’t know where we could put it.
    Also, Do we put the Kim in the fridge???? or not???

    hi,Agasuka,

    I’m glad to hear that you are happy about your kimbab.

    Apple vinegar could be used for sauce for any dishes that need sour and sweet taste. I make dipping sauce with it by mixing soysauce and vinegar.

    maangchi,

    I made Kimbap second day in the row. This time I use apple vinegar. It’s good! I like the apple fragrance.

    I bought the apple vinegar, because it seems interesting. Other than making salad dressing, would you give me some suggestions on using the apple vinegar please?

    Thanks.

    Hello! I really love your videos and I was hoping you’ll make some dolsot bibimbap and make videos on how to make side dishes (my favorite is the small potatoes with sweet sauce)

    Thanks!

    Maangchi,

    Thank you so much for the video.

    I made the tuna kimbap for supper tonight.
    It is very tasty.
    May I suggest that an extra lamp/ light to be place at front during the making of your videos so that the objects will be clearer to the audiance?
    The cooked tuna reminds me of the chinese ‘pork sung’ which usually serve with rice porridge. I think the tuna will be great as a side dish alone if the amount of soy sauce to be reduced to 1 tbs. I use the rice vinegar which you mentioned. I am not brave enough to use the Korean apple vinegar yet.

    I’m in the US. I had a shopping spree at the international market last weekend. The squid is the packaged dry variety but sauteed in soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar and pepper flakes. It’s chewy, sweet and spicy. So good! Thanks for dropping by.

    Hello Maangchi, I bought a bottle of Sa Gwa Cho/ Korean Apple Vinegr yesterday.

    Can I use it for the kimbap sauce?
    What can I do with it other than making salad?

    Hi,patricia,
    My next one will be Ddeukbokkie(hot and spicy rice cake).
    I learned the recipe from an old lady selling her ddeukbokkie in a big market in Seoul. She was using very simple method.
    Traditional way of making ddeubokki was made without using hot pepper paste. But I prefer hot and spicy ddeuk bok kie. : )
