    Looks good, no ingredient that I am not a fan of in Korean cuisine. Wouldn’t mind giving it a try.

  3. These sound delicious! We’ve done a similar combination of ingredients for salmon, but I’ve never thought it for potatoes. Putting this on the list for a fun side dish!!

  4. I think I would actually serve these as an appetizer, as well as a side dish. Great flavors.
