Beyond kimchi as the representative Korean food in the international food scene, there is jogaetang or the Korean clam stew – one of the seafood-based soups in Korea that are perhaps slightly less spicy than its colleagues in the stew and soups department.
Jogaetang is best paired with soju. The clear soup belies its many-splendored flavors, beginning with the anchovy and radish broth where the clams are later set to cook.
Clams contain more iron than beef, which also makes this a healthy alternative to beef if you’re looking for something to help you with your anemia. Its low fat and saturated-fat content may actually be good news for some on a diet as it contains heart-healthy fats and lean protein content.
