Korean Mixed Rice with Sashimi, referred to in Korean as Hwe Dup Bap, is a Korean dish consisting of steamed white rice mixed with sashimi, vegetables such as green leaf lettuce, cucumbers, julienned Korean radishes, sesame oil, and topped with a sweet and spicy gochujang sauce. Similar to bibimbap, you mix everything together in the bowl and enjoy.
This is one of my absolute favorite things to eat. Ever. I love sushi and sashimi so give this to me over a bowl of rice and I’m a happy girl. And this time, I took matters into my own hands and got the sushi grade fish all on my own and sliced the fish myself!
My dad owns a sushi restaurant in Dallas so sushi has always been a huge part of my life, post college. I love it and a couple of years ago, my dad even taught me how to make one of my faves: a spicy tuna roll! (forgive the photos, this was over 2 years ago!)
