Jarimulhoe is a traditional Jeju Island recipe commonly eaten in the summer. Jari, or damselfish (Chromis notata) is found in the northwest of the Pacific Ocean (1) near the coast of Jeju Island. “Hoe” (pronounced hway) means raw and “mul” is water. So, Jarimulhoe means “raw damselfish in a chilled broth.”
Jari can be found easily in the everyday markets, and you can even get your fish sliced for you by the merchants (if you ask). The preparation of cutting the vegetables is somewhat time consuming, but it is well worth it!
Because the bones are included in this dish it provides a rich source of calcium. The peptide in the fish bone helps calcium bio-availability and acts as a calcium fortifier (2). Many Asian countries don’t consume dairy products because of lactose indigestion and intolerance, and so fish bones are a main source of their calcium (3).
Note: Because this dish contains raw fish, pregnant women, young children, the elderly or persons with an unhealthy immune system should not consume due to the risk of food borne illness.
