Kimbap or Gimbap.....Korean Sushi

I love Korean Food......kimchi, kimchi pancakes, gimbap, and kimchi fried rice are only some of the dishes I make...they are not difficult to make.....

My friend taught me how to make Kimbap. Kimbap is the Korean version of sushi. However, watching some videos in youtube on how to make colorful kimbap, I fall in love with the colorful display, and how easy they are to make them.

It is difficult to explain how to make them; thus, I will invite you to watch some youtube videos like this one 

However, I will give some tips on how to make them.

Rice boiled and warm. You can season it with some salt, sugar and rice vinegar. I don't season it.

Veggies of different colors:

I used red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, orange bell pepper, carrots, and blue cabbage. All of them were sliced finely and stir fry (not overcooked).

Avocados, cucumber. All of them finely sliced.

Eggs. Separate egg whites and egg yolks. Make thin pancakes for each batter,  and slice them finely.

For protein, I used tuna with mayonnaise, smoked salmon, and shrimps with mayonnaise.

The trick for make the circles inside the kimbap, is to use 1/2 of seaweed sheet. First, you  make small rolls of veggies, rice, or colored rice. Then, you place them inside the roll to make the figures.

You have to use 1 and 1/2 seaweed sheet. You can glue both with rice. Spread the rice, and then place different combination of veggies and proteins. Roll them, and cover them with plastic wrap. Place it in the fridge until you serve it. serve it with soya sauce and kimchi. ENJOY!!
