Easy and exquisite Korean rice bowl recipe – Vegetables and Flying Fish Roe Rice (Al Bap).
Flying Fish Roe Rice (Al Bap) | MyKoreanKitchen.com

Al bap (알밥) is a kind of trendy meal that got popular in recent years in Korea. Al (알, eggs) here refers the flying fish roe. It’s a popular ingredient when making sushi as well. (In Japanese term, it’s called tobiko.)

I’ve seen this so called ‘al bap’ appearing a lot on the online Korean foodies community yet, I’ve never had this dish at a restaurant before so I don’t know what to expect for its taste.

Though I can figure that it is a type of bibimbap.

Fish roe is quite an expensive ingredient but it does add nice texture to the dish, particularly when it bursts in your mouth.

I hope you try this recipe some day!

  1. Kat,
    Yeah, If you like bibimbap you will like this meal too. 🙂
    Just the caviar brings extra texture.

    Pepy,

    Of course you can add tuna in water, it is totally up to you.
    We can’t get tuna in water in Korea as far as I know.
