Corn Cheese Fritters

If you have ever had the pleasure of eating a dish called “corn cheese” at a Korean restaurant, you will know exactly what these Corn Cheese Fritters taste like! I was inspired by this popular Korean BBQ recipe and decided to make it into mini corn fritters. These Cheese Corn Fritters are sweet, cheesy, and creamy, just like the original recipe! A Hybrid Corn Creation The first time that I had corn cheese at a Korean BBQ restaurant, my mind was blown! I did not know that something so simple as corn could taste even better than it already does. In the traditional Korean recipe, corn kernels are tossed with mayo, scallions, and sometimes peppers before being placed into a buttered cast-iron skillet and topped with mozzarella cheese. The cheese melts and becomes all stringy and gooey, which you can scoop up and eat with BBQ meats (or on it’s own). I have not had this recipe since moving to Victoria, BC and I was really craving it, so I decided to make a slightly …

Gochujang Chicken Thighs

Now that it is dark outside super early, I am finding that I want quick and easy weeknight dinner recipes even more. But as the cold weather moves in, I want something more than meat and potatoes or soup. I want to enjoy something spicy, aromatic and lively during these dull times, and this recipe for Gochujang Chicken Thighs does the trick! What is Gochujang? Gochujang is a spicy, savoury and slightly sweet chili paste from Korea. It has s complex flavour, but works well in a wide range of Korean dishes, especially savoury ones. This paste is extremely thick as it is made from glutinous rice, fermented soybeans, and dried red chilies and comes in a paste form. Gochujang can also vary in terms of spice levels, ranging from mild to hot. Since I love spicy foods, I always go for the ‘hot’ spice level for my recipes! Not sure if you’ve had gochujang before? Well, if you’ve ever had any Korean food (Korean Fried Chicken, Kimchi Jiggae, and even kimchi itself), it is …
