Hire Me To Eat Your Kimbap

Wanna hire me to eat your kimbap?

Divide and conquer

What is that, you ask?

It’s a wondrous coming together of rice and assorted filling wrapped nicely in a sheet of dried seaweed.  Some of you gringos know it as a “sushi roll”.

The trick with kimbap––some of you will know it as 김밥––is to spread your rice (short grain, please) over the seaweed so that it’s nice and even.  Do that with your (clean!) wet fingers.

One fabulous filling for kimbap is tuna.  Make it spicy with jalapeno!  Add a little mayo or leave it out.

I combine marinated sesame leaves and cucumber with the tuna to make it super sassy!

Roll up your kimbap nice and slow so everything stays inside there.  Then all you have to do is slice it up.

Get in my belly!

Don’t even think about hiring this guy to eat your kimbap.   He can’t eat but two or three!

Eat it good

Eat it real good

Leave this job for the professionals.

  1. Haha, love the title of your post! Whenever I make kimbap I always end up with lots of rolls because I can’t seem to make a small quantity – mainly because thr quantity of fillings. So you’re welcome to pop over for some… 😄
    But….I recently learned you can actually fry up leftover kimbap the next day. Just with a bit of sesame oil in a non sticky pan.. mjum

    • Thanks! I really would come over and eat your kimbap! I guess I’m a little piggie when it comes to kimbap as I can eat so much of it. Though I will try the heating in the pan trick for any leftovers.
