Ssamjang – Korean Dipping Sauce

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

Ssamjang is usually eaten with a ssam of grilled meat. One typically puts a leaf of lettuce or perilla on an open hand, places the main components of the meal (grilled meat such as galbi or samgyeopsal, kimchi and other banchan, rice if desired) in bite-sizes in the centre, tops it off with ssamjang, wraps the leaf around the entire contents, and then eats the wrapped ssam.

Variations

Besides the standard way of making ssamjang, other ingredients can be added to make special versions. There are also commercially prepacked ssamjang available on the market.

  • Nut ssamjang (견과류 쌈장): ground walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and other nuts are added
  • Jjukumi ssamjang (쭈꾸미 쌈장): diced short-arm octopus is stir-fried with diced red peppers and onions, and mixed together with ssamjang
  • Tofu ssamjang (두부 쌈장): crushed tofu is added
  • Flying fish roe ssamjang (날치알 쌈장) : flying fish roe is added
  • Namul ssamjang (나물 쌈장): various beans are diced and added
