This delicious Ssamjang is flavored with various spices like garlic, ginger, soybeans, chilies etc. Ssamjang literally translates to “paste for wraps,” alluding to its traditional use as a condiment to add to ssam when wrapping protein and rice in leafy vegetables (or sometimes seaweed/kelp). Can be enjoyed as a dipping sauce for fresh vegetable sticks, grilled proteins, etc. and in western dishes, ssamjang makes an excellent marinade ingredient and can be blended with other ingredients to make dipping sauces. If making a gravy or stew a tablespoon of this can add an interesting flavor profile.
