Marinated Raw Crab Meat for Breakfast (게장)

Gan-jang ge-jang, or ge-jang (게장), is quite simply raw crab meat marinated in soy sauce.  Not to be confused with yang-nyum ge-jang, a spicier version of the dish, gan-jang ge-jang is the soy sauce version.    I first heard about it from one one my students who claimed it was her favourite Korean dish.  ”You’ve never tried it?” She asked surprisingly.

I thought I had been missing something until I sat down to breakfast one morning while staying with a Korean family.  In the middle of the table was a colourful dish of ge-jang sprinkled with sesame seeds.  I felt a little put off by something so raw in the A.M, but I didn’t want to be rude so I picked up a claw and sucked the juicy meat right out of the shell.  It was heavily marinated in soy sauce which dominated my taste buds and made me forget that I was eating uncooked crab.  I didn’t hate it but I probably wouldn’t order it as a main course at a restaurant.
