Inje - Local Delicacies

  • Inje Hwangtae Jjim (steamed dried pollack)

    Repeating the freezing and melting process over and over, Hwangtae's inside is golden yellow, and its chewy taste is second to none. Natural drying must be done in an area with huge daily temperature difference in order to make soft Hwangtae free from the typical fishy smell. Inje's climate is perfect for drying Hwangtae, thus, it accounts for 70% of Hwangtae production in Korea, boasting about the best quality. Thanks to that, Hwangtae-based cookery was developed in Gangwon-do, presenting a variety of forms such as grill, soup, and steamed dish.
