This dish is an easy meal to prepare especially when you have lots of avocado and you do not know what to do with them. You can make it spicy or just with the spices and it will still be delicious. You can even bake the chicken or stuff it with cheese, spinach or even vegetables.

Gyeran-jjim (계란찜) KOREAN STEAMED EGGS

Gyeran-jjim (계란찜) or steamed eggs is a type of jjim, Korean steamed dish. It is a custardy, casserole-like banchan (side dish), often seasoned with saeu-jeot (salted shrimp) or myeongnan-jeot (salted pollock roe) and topped with scallions and toasted sesame seeds. The ideal gyeran-jjim is light and fluffy. There are several ways to cook gyeran-jjim. It can be steamed, double-boiled, or boiled in a stovetop-safe crock on a very low heat. For faster cooking, some people microwave the bowl. Eggs are sieved, and whisked with water until the mixture are completely blended in a cream-like consistency. Sometimes, kelp and/or anchovy broth is used in place of water for a richer flavor. Optional ingredients include mushrooms, peas, onions, Korean zucchini, carrots, and other vegetables for their own twist on the dish. The dish is then seasoned with saeu-jeot (salted shrimp), myeongnan-jeot (salted pollock roe), or salt, and optionally ground black pepper. Before served, it is topped with chopped scallions or crown daisy greens, gochutgaru (chili flakes) or sil-gochu (shredded dry red chili), and toasted sesame seeds.
