The Korean Market always has a fresh supply of fish and a large variety of seafood , each time I stop by on my way back from work.There is always something interesting in the market be it among the veggies or fruits they have in there or their Korean cooking utensils.Enjoy, walking through the aisles slowly looking at different things on sale, till I reach the seafood section of the store.
Some of my finds, this time in the market were…..
Packs of ‘Bunapi’ Organic mushrooms… whoever saw such tiny cute mushrooms on sale ?
Then came another new discovery, Purple Potatoes, though I have read about them, this is the first time I chanced to see them 🙂
Then , there were these red bananas, think I have seen a different version of them in South India, they were used to make a sweet dish called Halwa 🙂
A little further down the aisle in the cooking utensils section, there were varied rice cookers, noodle and dumpling steamers, yet my eye caught this earthenware pot with a lid, I had long wanted an earthenware pot to make my fish curry in, coz the taste certainly is flavorful when made in an earthenware, this one though was much smaller , perhaps to serve soups I thought and headed towards the sea food section at last.
Rows and rows of fresh and frozen sea food lined the aisles, lobsters, crabs, sea fish and farm raised one alike. I stood there and gazed for a long time, somehow the Golden Pompano , looked like a good catch, so bought it and got it cleaned by the kind Korean guy who cleans it up for you and headed home, spicy traditional fish curry in mind.
This weekend has been amazingly slow with good weather and sorting out closets, getting ready for the Fall/Winter season, needless to say getting a lot of work done also leaves one hungry…..Golden Pompano to the rescue, made it the traditional way, added coconut milk for good measure, now all that is left is a good siesta after an yummilicious lunch. How is Sunday treating you so far ??
