Peeled Potato 감자 440 Grams

1 Scallion, Minced 다진 쪽파

1/2 Teaspoon 작은술 Salt 소금

1 Garlic Clove 마늘

1 Pinch Black Pepper 후추

1 Pinch 꼬집 Salt 소금

1 Tablespoon 큰술 Sesame Oil 참기름


Step One

Cut the potatoes into sticks. The sticks should be not as wide as, but thicker than linguine pasta. Place all the potato sticks into a bowl of cold water.

Step Two

In a medium size pot, fill with more than 1/2 of water, and bring to boil. Once the water comes to boil, add salt and garlic.

  • 1/2 to 1 Teaspoon 작은술 Salt 소금

  • 1 Garlic Clove 마늘

Then stain the potato sticks and add to the pot of boiling water. Once the water comes back to boiling, start counting 2 minutes. The stove heat remains HIGH.

2 minutes later, bring the boiling pot to the sink and pour into a strainer. Quickly bring down the temperature of the potato stick by rinsing in cold water. Be gentle to avoid breaking up the potato sticks. At this point, the potato sticks should hold its shape and just slightly firm. Gently toss the cooled down potato sticks to remove any excess water.

Step Three

In a large mixing bowl. add the following ingredients and mix well.

  • 1 Pinch Black Pepper 후추

  • 1 Pinch 꼬집 Salt 소금

  • 1 Tablespoon 큰술 Sesame Oil 참기름

  • 1 Garlic Clove 마늘 (using a microplane, grate the garlic clove)

  • Garnish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds

Then add the potato sticks to the mixing bowl. Gently mix the potato sticks with your hands to coat the seasoning. Then have a taste test. If you like it less salty, this should be good. But if you prefer a saltier taste so it balances out when you have it warm Korean rice, add another pinch of salt and mix gently. You can garnish with sesame seeds. Like any salads, it is best to consume this salad within a few days of making. Always store the salad in the fridge.

Now, you can have this potato side dish as salad or as a salty banchan with warm Korean rice. Not all Asian rice are the same, so do enjoy this potato side dish with Korean rice, and of course, kimchi will be perfect!

If you are in a pinch and don't have time to make Korean rice, try this cooked microwavable Korean rice.

Bon appétit😋
