Gochujang red pepper paste is a traditional Korean condiment used to bring rich spiciness to soups and jjigae stews, or add a bit of excitement to a bowl of plain rice. The deep red gochujang paste has kimchi-like taste and complex chilli flavours. It's perfect for enhancing traditional Korean dishes and stir fries, but gochujang is also exciting when used in unexpected recipes – such as bacon butties, beef jerky and chilli kale chips!

Try mixing the gochujang with doenjang (fermented soybean paste), minced spring onions, garlic, ginger, rice wine and sesame oil to make ssamjang - the dipping sauce for Korean lettuce wraps. Also use gochujang in a marinade for bulgogi beef, and as a dressing for the Korean raw fish and vegetable dish, hweh bop bop.
