    Korean exceptionally love 'seam(wraps)'. Regardless of the type of food, whether it is vegetable or seaweed, they spread it extensively on the palm and wrap any ingredients. Anything that can be wrapped with the vegetable can be used as an ingredient. Ssamjang mixes well with Doenjang and Gochujang. In Ssamjang, tofu or boiled beans can be minced and mixed with nuts, such as peanut, walnut, etc. to boost the delicate taste. Korean Ssamjang proves its real worth with Samgyeopsal Gui (Grilled pork belly). A piece of well grilled-done pork belly with Ssamjang, pepper and garlic wrapped in lettuce will be in perfect harmony each other. Ssamjang doesn't taste too strong so it can be used to make a spread for bread or bisque. Put enough Ssamjang with anchovy or meat broth and add all sorts of vegetables, and then mix them with rice. This will make a healthy meal that will make you happy.
