Godeungeo Mujorim (Braised Mackerel with Radish)

Tested Recipe with Slight Adjustment Adapted from www.maangchi.com

 

Ingredients:

1 no x 800g mackerel (cleaned and cut into pieces)

1 no x 780g radish (peeled and cut into thick pieces)

2 large onion (sliced)

2 green chillies (sliced diagonally)

1 red chilli (sliced diagonally)

3 stalk spring onion (sectioned)

1 cup water

Seasoning sauce: (mixed well)

1/3 cup chopped garlic

1 tbsp chopped young ginger

½ cup light soy sauce

¼ cup hot pepper flakes

Preparation Instructions:

  1. Place radish pieces to a large thick bottomed pot. Spread them out evenly.
  2. Place the onion slices over the radish.
  3. Place the mackerel pieces over the onion.
  4. Pour the seasoning sauce over the fish. Pour in 1 cup of water along the edges of the pot.
  5. Close the lid and bring to a boil over high heat for 20 minutes.
  6. Open the lid, tilt the pot, and use a spoon to push aside the mackerel and radish to make empty spot for the broth to well.
  7. Scoop some broth from the empty spot and pour it over top of the fish and radish. Repeat several times.
  8. Add the spring onion, red and green chillies.
  9. Close the lid and lower the heat to a simmer for 30 minutes, until the radish is cooked thoroughly. The radish will absorb the soy sauce based broth, so it will look brownish and a little translucent when cooked nicely.
  10. Open the lid and turn the heat to boil off the excess broth.
  11. Tilt the pot and use a spoon to push aside the mackerel and radish to make empty sport for the broth to well.
  12. Scoop some broth from the empty spot and pour it over the top of the fish and radish. Repeat it off and on for about 5 minutes.
  13. Dish out and serve with rice.
