Meet the Kaenip Wrap

By December 14, 2012

Follow me on:

kaenipKaenip is a green-leafed herb that is a member of the mint family. With a strong scent and taste similar to mint and sesame, kaenip (perilla) is very popular in Korean cuisine. It can be marinated, fried, and eaten raw. Korean perilla leaves have a much stronger taste than the Japanese or Vietnamese versions. Look at this beautiful version wrapped around grilled pork belly.

Naomi wishing you and your family a wonderful Happy New Year. I am so happy with all of your wonderful recipes that I receive from you. The recipes are wonderful and you bring interesting background information in reference to what the new recipe you give us for the day. What I loved the best was the contest that you had offered in the summer whereby if we could take a recipe of ours and incorporate Korean ingredients. It made me want to enter. But, I was not able to do so. So Naomi please try to offer that same contest again this coming summer. I believe the winner would get to visit South Korea and I would absolutely love that experience. Keep up the wonderful job you are doing with the Korean Recipes.
Sincerely,
Betty Fagan
