Hweh dupbop is one of many dishes that combine abundant ingredients that Koreans enjoy and if you love sushi, you'll also enjoy this dish very much. It contains raw fish (usually salmon), white steamed rice, fresh vegetables such as green leaf lettuce, carrots, cucumber, onions and many more, mixed with a gochujang-based sauce called chojang. This big bowl of sushi-grade raw fish, vegetables, and rice is served with a spicy-sweet chojang, so that diners can mix it to their personal spice levels.
The basic ingredients of chojang are gochujang and rice vinegar which is usually a traditional accompaniment to eating raw fish in Korean cuisine. Hweh dupbop is a perfect meal during the summer and some restaurants may add slices of Korean pears which can complement its overall flavors during the hot weather.
When preparing at home, salmon can be substituted with a variety of fish such as tuna, yellowtail, and red snapper. However, the fish should be sushi-grade and very fresh which can be found in Korean or Japanese markets.
