Let’s Start Cooking!

  1. Add water, anchovies, and kelp to a pan. Over medium high heat, boil 15 minutes. This broth will enhance the flavor of the dish.
  2. Remove kelp and anchovies. Add hot pepper paste, hot pepper flakes, and honey. Dissolve the hot pepper paste.
  3. Add rice cakes, green onions, fish cakes, and eggs. Bring to a boil, then stir with a wooden spoon or wooden spatula for 7 minutes or until the broth becomes a sticky sauce.
  4. Turn off the heat and serve. I garnished it with chopped raw green onion.
