This form of Korean gochujang, known as “hot pepper paste for sushi” is a mixture of the famous Korean chilli paste – gochujang – mixed together with vinegar.
The vinegared gochujang is served at the table in Korean restaurants – most often to accompany fish or sashimi.
The vinegar is mixed together with gochujang to make it a little easier to pour, and brings an acidic note that perfectly complements seafood. Enjoy this vinegared red chilli sauce served with a squid bibimbap: garnish a bowl of warm rice with grated carrots, baby leaves, beansprouts, a fried egg, tobiko fish roe, and finely chopped sashimi grade squid or cooked squid, and toss together with the chilli sauce at the table.
