When I stayed in Puerto Escondido, Mexico, I was very excited to be able to buy fresh fish on the beach every morning. The fish sold from fishermen’s boats were so fresh that some were still alive! I bought tuna and Spanish mackerel.
I decided to make mulhoe, something that I had been longing to make for many years but couldn’t, simply because I couldn’t find extremely fresh fish where I live. My dream came true once I saw the fish in Mexico.
I wanted to share this delicious special food with my new friends that I made there. I asked my friend Bob:
“Do you like raw fish? If so, I would like to invite you to brunch!”
He said: “Does a fish like water?” : )
I’ve always believed food is more delicious when it’s shared with many people. The more, the better, especially any dish with raw fish. I wouldn’t like to chew raw fish alone by myself in a dark room. It already sounds miserable!
When I came home to New York, I made mulhoe again with top quality hoe (sashimi) grade tuna from the freezer section of a Korean grocery store. It turned out great! The photos below are from the day I made mulhoe in New York.
To fully enjoy this dish, I recommend you make it with noodles: set out small bowls for everyone and let them serve themselves. They should put some spicy cold mulhoe in their bowl and add cooked thin noodles. The soup should be freezing cold and the taste is supposed to be spicy, sour, and a little sweet. You can use more or less hot pepper paste, sugar, or vinegar in this recipe, according to your taste.
Anybody who loves ceviche will love this dish. When you serve this with noodles, it will make a nice simple meal. Enjoy the recipe!
Ingredients (for 4 servings):
1 pound of fresh fish (or frozen sashimi grade fish), hot pepper paste, hot pepper flakes, sugar, salt, vinegar, onion, garlic, lettuce, tomato, green chili peppers, roasted sesame seeds, sesame oil, water, and thin noodles.
Make the cold broth:
