Posted by request. I found this recipe on the bag of seaweed (miyuk, in koean). It is delicious and very healthy. Gochujang and gochu garu are korean ingredients easily found in korean groceries. I cannot think of any decent substitutes. This is usually eaten with rice during korean meals, not as a main dish.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 ounce dried wakame seaweed (miyuk, or wakame)
  • 1 tablespoon korean red pepper bean paste (kochu jang in korean)
  • 1 teaspoon korean ground red pepper powder (kochu garu in korean)
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons roasted sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon very finely minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar


  1. Soak seaweed in hot water for 5-10 minutes.
  2. use scissors or fingers to tear into bit size pieces then squeeze out water.
  3. mix rest of ingredients together to make dressing.
  4. mix dressing and seaweed together.
  5. Taste to see if seasoning is to your liking. you may want a little bit more salt or sugar.
  6. refrigerate and serve cold.
