  1. uhmn I'm confused, what's the difference betweek radish in a strainer? and using left overs again putting in the same broth?

  2. I made this yesterday and it was delicious! I replaced anchovies with air dried shrimp and my friends who lived long time in Korea said it tastes similar. Thank Maangchi for the recipe!

  3. 我就好奇问一下,为什么要穿个签子呢?因为吃的时候还是要撸下来而且签子上面的鱼丸也煮不到

  4. Maangchi I HATE the taste of seaweed….is it ok to leave kelp out of the broth? I love seafood! Just not seaweed! Unless I get maki rolls for sushi I cannot tolerate the taste of Nori
