[Yangban] Seasoned Seaweed Flakes (Kimjaban)


Dongwon - Kimjaban

Tossed with Powdered Soybean & Sesame Seeds

[Yangban] Seasoned Seaweed Flakes (Kimjaban)

Yangban's Seasoned Seaweed Flakes is a delicious topping for a bowl of freshly steamed rice.

Seasoned Seaweed Flakes is called Kimjaban (김자반) in Korean.

How's it made?

Yangban harvests wild seaweed off the coastal rocks - from the Southern Coast of Korea (Namhae).

The fresh seaweed is then roasted at a high temperature of 300°C to create flakes. These crunchy flakes are set aside to dry-out for 24 hours.

Afterwards, they are seasoned with powdered soybean, salt and sesame seeds.

Then, they are roasted a second time at 100°C to produce extra-crispy, brittle flakes!

The powdered soybean gives - the otherwise salty flakes - a slight sweet and nutty flavor (similar to Injeolmi rice cakes).

Sprinkle a handful of the flakes over your rice and enjoy.

Kimjaban is an especially popular rice topping among Korean children!

Available in a bundle of 2 bags.

Amazing seaweed flakes

This stuff is dangerous! For context I'm a college student and love to cook but currently am in desperate need to go to the grocery store. I can only do so much with instant noodles and no protein (I don't even have eggs in the fridge). Since I never had them before, last night I gave it a teats to see what I'm working with. I use chopsticks because of the sesame oil and took out ONE piece for the teats. suddenly the bag had 1/4 of its content missing, and i realize that is not a healthily thing to do, but I can't read the nutritional facts so who is going to stop me. And if I use the logic of one of my old teachers who made "fat free, sugar free fudge" once its cut into pieces all the fat and sugar fall out, so if i can't read it is like i am eating air and that is perfectly healthy. But in all seriousness this stuff is amazing and I will definitely order more when my student loan comes in.

The best seasoned seaweed flakes

My husband and I loved these seasoned seaweed flakes. He really liked putting them in soups and rice while I mainly add it to plain white rice. It adds great flavor. When we ran out we decided to buy a different brand at our local H-Mart but the flavor was not comparable at all. Definitely would recommend these to anyone.
