Mu Namul (Radish Side Dish)
1 pound Korean radish (mu/moo)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons light soy sauce (optional)
1/2 teaspoon fish sauce
salt to taste ( soy has enough salt in it for me)
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
1.Wash and dry the radish. Peel the skin if necessary. You don't need to peel if the skin is smooth and clean.Cut the radish into match sticks or shed it on the side of a box grater.
2.Heat a large skillet with a tablespoon of oil over medium heat. Add the radish with the optional soy sauce, salt, and garlic and cook for 4 - 5 minutes, stirring well, until the radish become wilted and translucent.
3.Add 1/4 cup of water. Reduce the heat to medium low, cover, and cook for an additional 3 - 4 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning and/or cooking time as needed. Right before turning off the heat, add the chopped scallion, sesame oil, and sesame seeds, and stir well. Serve warm.
