Salted Shrimp Sauce (Saewoo Jeot)

Makes ~1/3 cup

Prep time: 10 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons of Korean salted and fermented shrimp (saewoo jeot)

  • 2 tablespoons of finely sliced scallions

  • 1 clove of garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon water

  • 1/2 tsp gochugaru

  • 1/2 tsp toasted sesame seeds

Combine all ingredients and serve. Add in a couple of drops of toasted sesame oil before serving if you desire. Use sparingly as it is very salty and pungent. A must-have condiment for dishes such as bossam.
