Hoe may refer to various
raw food dishes in Korean cuisine. Saengseon hoe is thinly sliced raw fish
or other raw seafood (similar to Japanese
sashimi); yukhoe is hoe made with
a raw beef and seasoned with soy sauce, sesame oil, and rice wine; and gan hoe is raw beef liver with a sauce of sesame oil and salt.
Left: Hoe - Korean
style raw fish.
Fish hoe is usually dipped in a spicy
gochujang-based sauce called chogochujang,
wasabi ("Japanese horseradish")
sauce, and wrapped in lettuce and Korean
perilla leaves. To make hoe aesthetically pleasing, it is often served on of a
mass of uncooked dangmyeon (cellophane noodles).
When people finish a meal of saengseon hoe at a restaurant, they sometimes order
maeuntang (spicy fish stew, from the fish heads and remaining meat) together
with various vegetables.
