Korean sauce/ Paste
Ssamjang is indispensable in Korean cooking. Literally translated, “ssam” means wrap and “jang” means sauce.
- 100% Korean
- Suitable for a Korean barbecue
- Delicious as a dip sauce with a lettuce wrap
Ssamjang is a traditional Korean sauce made from fermented* soybeans, chilli pepper paste, garlic and sesame, which is served with other Korean dishes. It is often eaten in combination with a lettuce wrap, kimchi (a typically Korean vegetable side dish) and a rice dish. Extremely healthy and great to share with each other!
What makes Korean cooking different from other surrounding Asian countries is its use of Doenjang (soybean paste), Gochujang (chilli pepper paste) or a combination of these. These ingredients make Korean cooking special and unique!
* In fermentation, bacteria, moulds or yeasts convert substances in a product so as to change its acidity, flavour, smell or appearance. This process is also called fermenting. Fermenting changes the food, making some products more digestible. Or some substances are converted into others. For example, in yogurt, fermenting converts the milk sugar lactose into lactic acid.
