Bugeo Guk (Korean Dried Pollack Soup)

Photo: oliviajasonkim

We had ourselves a light and healthy bugeo guk (dried pollack soup) with our meal tonight. We have been holding off on this dish simply because it's a ripoff to buy at our local Korean market (we paid $13 for an 8 oz bag) and wanted to wait until our next trip to Chicago where we could buy some higher quality and less expensive Korean goods. Anyways, we bought it in the end and the taste alone proved its worth....http://www.mykoreaneats.com
