Bo ssam, also doing business as bossam, is a traditional Korean dish of pork belly and spices… what, you thought the word “fish” would appear somewhere in that sentence? Well, that ain't the tradition, my friend! But while we respect tradition, why hew the line on musty have-tos when you can reinvent? Take tilapia, bind it together with traditional flavors like ginger and cilantro, and form into a light and delightful fish cake. Serve it on a lip-smacking sauce of mayo and gochujang (also from Korea), with slaw on the side and pickled shallot on top. Tradition? That's something for fiddlers on roofs to crow about. Tip: Easier way to mince cilantro? Gather them all in one hand and lay on the cutting board. Use your knife in a rocking motion to cut, then turn 90 degrees and repeat until the herbs are properly minced!
