  • In a non-stick pan set over medium high heat, add cooking oil followed by diced onions. Saute until the onions are soft and translucent.
  • Next add your kimchi and garlic and give it a mix. Cook this until the juices from the kimchi are released.
  • Then add tuna and break it apart. Mix the tuna into the other ingredients. Season with sugar and sesame seeds.
  • Finally add your rice and kimchi juice (optional). If you want a spicy tuna kimchi fried rice, add ½ tbsp gochujang paste or more, as desired.
  • Then add Korean mayo, give your rice a thorough mix until it's well combined and each granule is coloured in red. Enjoy with a fried egg over top and some roasted seaweed.
