My daughter loves Cheese and Tteokbokki, I love seafood and mixing these elements brings us to this dish that we have today the Cheesy Seafood Tteokbokki, a dish prepared like a normal Tteokbokki but loaded with seafood like prawns, squid, scallops and surimi, it is then finished off with quickmelt cheese and mozzarella in the oven for a gooey toasted topping.

A casserole that is a celebration of flavours, spicy, hot, sweet, savoury and creamy all at the same time, add to that the taste of seafood and mildly salty cheese, it is definitely a party for your taste buds. Its Korean (tteok and gochujang), its Italian (mozzarella), its American (quick melt/Velveeta), its Japanese (dashi), it’s a wonderful confusion of everything.
