A Kimbap Recipe Inspired by Extraordinary Atty Woo
If you’re a fan of Extraordinary Atty Woo, you know that the adorable lawyer loves three things – her job, whales, and kimbap. She only eats these Korean rolls and even follows a ritual before each meal. She’s biased towards her dad’s kimbap recipe, but she also indulges in her bestie’s unique version.
Unlike the usual gimbap that requires rolling, Dong Geu-Rami's recipe follows a beginner-friendly method. Instead of the typical sushi technique, you only need to spread ingredients on a nori sheet, fold into quarters, and slice in half. Think of it as a Korean quesadilla or sandwich! Serve as a light meal or snack and make the brilliant Woo Young-Woo extra proud.
- For the rice mixture:
- 1 cup cooked rice
- 2 tbsp sesame oil
- For the tuna mixture:
- 1 can tuna flakes in brine or oil, drained well
- 1 tbsp white onion, chopped finely
- 1/4 cup Lady’s Choice Real Mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp canola oil
- 4 pcs eggs
- 1/2 cup store-bought kimchi, chopped roughly
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 4 pcs nori sheets
- 4 pcs curly lettuce leaves
Putting together a standard Korean sushi roll follows the same procedure as Japanese maki. Do away with this old-school method in favor of this simple folding technique to cut down prep time. This kimbap recipe is also customizable! You can serve variants like cheese kimbap, kimchi kimbap, and beef kimbap at a K-Drama viewing party. Why not transform the components of a bibimbap into this folded treat? It’s the perfect Korean picnic food idea to enjoy with fellow Atty Woo fans!
