Kimchi Omelette – Fusion Kimchi

Posted in Food and Drink, Kimchi Gone Fusion, My Recipes by 노강호 on June 9, 2011

Key Features: easy and quick to cook, adaptable, Korean fusion, snack or fusion side dish

I’m constantly on a diet and freeze anything I might be tempted to eat when feeling peckish. So, one evening, feeling a little hungry I looked in the fridge to see what items might possibly make a quick snack. Five different pots of kimchi and a couple of eggs were all that confronted me.

So, I whisked two eggs and then added some chopped kimchi. The result was quite delicious.


1 cup = 180ml. T=tablespoon (15ml), d=dessert spoon (10ml) t=teaspoon (5ml) 

This recipe is ideal for one – double ingredients for each additional person


2 eggs beaten in a bowl

Half a cup of finely chopped kimchi

1t of sesame oil.

1t of sesame seeds

a little ordinary oil – just enough to stop the egg sticking to the pan

See variations and suggestions at the end of the recipe.


Frying pan and bowl


1. Fry the chopped kimchi for a few minutes in a little ordinary oil.

2. Fold kimchi into the beaten egg

3. Put the mixture back in the frying pan

4. Drizzle a little sesame oil and a sprinkle of sesame seeds just before turning the omelette.

Serve with a little tomato sauce or whatever takes your fancy.

      Mexican Korean fusion seems to be very popular. Never tried it but I’d love to.

    I’ve done the kimchi omlet before. Quite nummy.

    Kimchi quesadilla sounds rad too.

    But my favorite kimchi fusion food would still be the pork and kimchi burrito at Dos Tacos.

    Why won’t they open one in Daegu?
