Easy 10-min. Korean Fish Cake Stir-Fry

Korean Fish Cake Stir-Fry. Fish cakes stir fried in a savoury sweet sesame sauce with green onion and bell peppers. Ready in 10 minutes! This stir-fried dish is called "Eomuk Bokkeum" in Korean. My non-spicy version serves wonderfully as a side dish. Popular in Korean Food
