Abalone Kimchi Jjim

Abalone kimchi jjim.

A flavorful dish comprised of chicken, abalone, and healthy ingredients seasoned with kimchi and bulgoki sauce.

My friend Chaeki caught abalone and gave me some. So, I created this recipe from scratch and the taste was amazingly delicious!

Main Ingredients : Abalone , chicken breast meat , bell-flower roots , jujube , zucchini , sweet potato , white sweet potato ( Korean type of sweet potato ) , shredded cheese , mozzarella cheese , carrots ( julienne ) ,chest nut or sliced almond ( Optional ) , sliced onion , sweet basil , egg ( 1 ) , pancake mix ( 1 Tbsp ) , chopped garlic ( 1 tsp ) , Chopped ginger ( 1/8 tsp ) , garlic salt , pepper , salt , bulgoki sauce ( 1 tsp ) , honey Dijon or ranch dressing , oyster sauce ( 1/8 tsp , Optional ), black sesame seeds ( 1/2 tsp )

1. Prepare vegetables. You can add potato , chestnut , or sliced almond instead.
I decided to use sweet potato, instead of potato, because it is much healthier. Please check my secret ingredient section, if you want to know more details about the healthy factors.
2. Chicken. I used frozen breast meat, but you can have fresh chicken breast meat, if you want.

3. Kimchi : You can buy kimchi from a korean market.

4. Bell-flower roots ( Dorajji ) : I used frozen bell-flower root and soaked it in salty water for 15 mins and then drained the water out and chopped it into a small pieces.
5. Bulgoki sauce : You can buy it from a korean market.

Cooking Instructions.
1. Chopped kimchi

2. Chopped vegetables.

3. Sliced abalone. : You can try to make a thin slice. I made thick pieces and it was a little bit too chewy.

4. Mix prepared vegetables in a mixing bowl and add chopped garlic , chopped ginger , garlic salt , pepper, salt , egg and 1 tps of pancake mix, bulgoki sauce , oyster sauce ( 1/8 tsp , Optional )

5. Mix well and add slices of sweet basil and black sesame seeds, and then mix well again.
6. Once it is mixed well, you can put it into the casserole dish or a to steam cooker dish. I used the casserole dish to cook it in the oven, and added shredded cheeses and mozzarella cheese on top.
7. Cook in the oven for 1 hr at 325'F, or until it is cooked all the way through. Once it is cooked, you can serve the dish with honey Dijon or ranch dressing on top.
