This recipe is great for when you're craving an Asian stew (like a jjigae) but you don't have the necessary ingredients on hand. Perfect for warming up and enjoying that trout flavor. "Ingredients 2 whole trouts* 1-2 dried or fresh red chiles, optional and adjust to taste ½ small head napa cabbage, chopped into even sized pieces 1 small zucchini, evenly sliced lengthwise 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced 100 gm mushrooms, sliced 1 small onion, finely chopped 4 garlic cloves, minced 1 tbsp finely chopped ginger dried wakame or seaweed, soaked and drained and amounts to taste 2 packet Japanese fish bonito dashi 1 tbsp miso paste 2 tbsp soy sauce 1 tbsp rice vinegar 1 tbsp paprika, for extra color and optional 1 tbsp. vegetable oil 2 green onion, sliced into 4 parts, for garnish To Serve: steamed Jasmine or Basmati rice Instructions Clean trout and cut heads off, then cut each trout in half leaving you with 4 pieces. Next in a large pot fry onion until soft then add garlic and ginger and cook for 2 minutes. Next add all remaining ingredients except the trout and zucchini. Bring to a gentle boil then add the trout and zucchini, cover and simmer for 45 minutes or until the trout has cooked through. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. Garnish with sliced green onions and serve with steamed white rice. Notes *You can use any firm white fish of choice. Whole fish with bones and skin left on will help give a deeper flavour to the stew. Fillets may be used but will not yield the same results.
looks delish, similar to something my mother makes quite often too, have to give this recipe a try myself.
Ohhhh man I love me some jjigae. I would have never thought to use trout!
I might leave out the bell pepper but I'm willing to give this a try!
@amog32 any seaweed would work for wakame (its just a certain kind) and the honito dashi is a fish brouth, so actually you could make your own fish broth if you cant find these packets. it might even taste better that way
This looks delicious but it has quite a few ingredients I'm not sure where to get-whats wakame? And Japanese fish honito dashi? I wonder if I could make it without them. Any ideas @happyrock?
