Hi, everybody, I’m introducing another Korean popular side dish to you today, godeungeo-gui – grilled mackerel. This salty mackerel side dish is one of the most common fish dishes in Korea. Mackerel is known as a fish that is a great source of nutrients such as good fat (omega 3 fatty acids), protein, vitamins, and minerals!
The more important reason for me to like this fish is that it’s tasty!
What else? : ) Yes, it’s also cheap!
When I lived in Korea, I used to buy a huge box of mackerel and split it with my friends. It was usual for us to meet at the wholesale fish market early in the morning to shop for fish! : ) I don’t think I can do it now, but at the time it was a good way to save money and get very fresh mackerels during mackerel season. Besides, meeting my best friends at the market was a lot of fun.
In this video I only have 1 fish, but if you have a large family, or all your family members love mackerel, prepare several fish following my directions in the video and then wrap each piece of godeungeo in saran wrap. Keep them in the freezer and you can enjoy them for a long time.
1 mackerel (1¼ pound or about 600 grams), salt, vegetable oil, flour.
Now you can either pan-fry or grill.
