Today we have a traditional Korean dish for you, a Korean Spicy Sashimi Salad, better known as Hwe Dap Bap! What sets this dish apart from other sashimi salads is most definitely the spicy gochugang (spicy red pepper paste) and vinegar sauce! I also love that everything is vigorously mixed together before you start eating to make sure you get a little bit of everything in each and every bite!
I love how simple, yet totally satisfying this dish is and you can bulk it up with really anything you want! I generally like to keep mine a little simple and have only recently starting throwing in a little seaweed salad into the mix, which isn’t really traditional. Really though, add whatever you want! That’s the beauty of dishes like this, you can easily customize it to suit your own taste. Also, if you don’t feel like making your own sauce, or you don’t have the ingredients on hand nor do you want to buy them, you can pop in as a local Korean market and pick up a very inexpensive bottle of the sauce pre-made and ready to be drizzled on just about anything! Enjoy! xx, Jenny

Great recipe! Had picked up some sashimi tuna and salmon and had planned to make maki rolls. Wanted to spice it up and used this recipe. The cho-gochugang is on point. Added a serrano pepper and finely cut nori strips. This sashimi salad matches the taste of my favorite Korean spot.
So glad to hear you were into this! It’s the same recipe i grew up with and have been using for years :)
Marta @ What should I eat for breakfast today
I’ve never had a Korean salad, need to try it.
Looks delicious. Wish I could find some of these ingredients in the Dordogne but will need to wait until I go on vacation. Can’t complain though, I am living in an area with the very best French food imaginable.
This looks incredible. I think spiciness and sashimi are the only ways to make me actually crave a salad!

I’m all about sashimi and Korean food, so sashimi salad is definitely on my must make recipe. Love the combination of spicy and fresh salad. Yum!
