Al Chi-gae
Fish Egg Stew w/ Vegetables
알찌개

 

Al chigae is a fish egg casserole dish which contains tofu and assortment of vegetables in a refreshing, spicy broth.  The main ingredient is its fresh fish roe, usually from Codfish, which is deep and rich in flavor as well as texture.  Assortment of vegetables usually include enoki mushrooms, zucchini, green onions, green/red chili peppers and it is normally served in a ceramic bowl (ddukbaegi) which continues to heat the stew during consumption.  Many enjoy this meal with a bowl of bop or steamed rice to balance its spiciness.  Other side dishes can be found along with this meal but eating it alone with rice will surely satisfy your hunger.

Recipe Ingredients
  • 1 package tofu
  • 6 oz seasoned roe (available at your local Korean market)
