Korean Fresh Rolls

We love creating fusion dishes; this one combines our favourite type of cuisine, Korean, with Thai.  Fresh rolls are really easy to make, and you can fill them with whatever you like.

We started by marinating some pork.

Korean Pork Marinade

1 tsp gochujang paste (Korean grocery store)
1 tsp sesame oil
3 T mirin (or cooking wine)
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp hoisin
salt, pepper, ginger powder, garlic powder - to taste

Then you just cut up whatever you want inside your fresh rolls.  We used chopped kimchi, green onion, and cucumber.

Pour boiling water over rice noodles.  They will soften right away.  Drain the water.

Dip rice papers in hot water until they just start to soften.

Lay the paper down and fill with noodles, a couple pieces of pork, and the veggies.  Roll.
We dipped ours in a Korean dip.

Korean Fresh Roll Dip

2 tsp gochujang paste
enough water just to cover the paste
1 T brown sugar

Mix well.


What two types of cuisine would you like to try fused together?
