hoe -

Hoe (pronounced [hø ~ hwe]) is a generic term for a variety of Korean food in the form of the best cuts of fresh fish or uncooked meats. Saengseon hoe (생선회, 生鮮 ) is a thin slice of fresh fish meat or other seafood (similar to sashimi).

Yukhoe (육회, ) is raw beef flavored with soy sauce, gochujang, sesame oil, and rice wine. Gan hoe (간회, ) is a raw cow liver flavored with sesame oil and salt. Hongeohoe (홍어회, ) is a slice of stingray meat previously stored in a jar until fermented.

The cocol sauce for saengseon hoe is called chogochujang (초고추장) made from gochujang and vinegar. Before eating, hoe can be wasabi or dicocol into chogochujang or ssamjang sauce (쌈장), and wrapped in perila leaves or lettuce leaves. When served, hoe is placed on a plate containing dangmyeon to make it look interesting.

At the restaurant, when finished eating saengseon hoe, people often order maeuntang (fish soup made from fish head and fish parts that can not be made hoe).
