To continue the recipe comics, here is my mom's spinach ban-chan. It's always been a favorite of mine. Whenever I saw kids on TV gagging at the thought of eating spinach, it totally confused me. Spinach is delicious! And this dish is what I think of when I think of spinach.

The blanching and shocking process sounds a little confusing, but when you actually do it, it's very simple. Give it a try!

Cooking With Mom

I spent last Sunday going to my mom's unofficial Korean cooking class where she taught me several of her homemade recipes for ban-chan and fish.

To the left is a sort of instructional recipe comic I made so I could remember exactly what to do, as she is sort of self-taught. Her way of teaching is to simply make the thing and I watch. I took rigorous notes, so hopefully I'll be able to make instructional comics out of the rest of the recipes because making this was a lot of fun.

I hope it gives you the courage to try frying up a fish yourself! Pike Mackerel are especially high in omega-3's. Good luck. :)
