Korean BBQ Shrimp Stir Fry

One of our newest additions to the Serious Foodie sauce line is an authentic Lemon/Garlic Korean grill sauce and marinade, made with an all-natural gochujang sauce (click HERE to order, or find us at a store near you).

 

According to Wikipedia, “Gochujang  or red chili paste is a savory, sweet, and spicy fermented condiment made from gochutgaru (red chili powder), glutinous rice, mejutgaru (fermented soybean powder), yeotgireum (barley malt powder), and salt. The sweetness comes from the starch of cooked glutinous rice, cultured with saccharifying enzymes during the fermentation process.”  It is an amazing flavor combination that give this sauce a sweet/spicy/savory taste that works well in a stir fry.

This simple recipe will get you started on your way to using this exciting sauce.
