Recently, the Minister of Oceans and Fisheries posted on his social media, this! Kim Young-choon, the Minister of Oceans and Fisheries, posted this on his social media. *Thirsty Korean TV* I review all~~~ the Anjus (food eaten with drinks) in the world! Charm PD here from Thirsty Korean TV! Good to see you all! Hello to all my fans! Today, I brought flatfish sashimi. You all could think, ‘why did he bring flatfish sashimi?’. But recently, the Minister of Oceans and Fisheries posted on his social media, this! I’ll read it to you. Kim Young-choon, the Minister of Oceans and Fisheries, posted this on his social media. He says that recently flatfish prices have dropped sharply. So the fish farming union of Jeju Island, responsible for 65% of Korea’s flatfish production, started to sell flatfish at a very affordable price. I’ll tell you how much I paid for this much. (Jeju flatfish sashimi) So this much is, 8,900 KRW(7.9 USD) with free shipping! Pretty nice. FYI they’re currently sold out. There’s an online shopping mall called Gongyoung Shopping which is run by the government. I got this from them. 200g to 300g is $7.9. And one whole fish is 17,500 KRW(15.5 USD) with free shipping. The fish farming union of Jeju is doing this to overcome the price drop. He wrote that this is an important marketing strategy our fishing industry must adopt in this age where single-member and two-member households are increasing. And the reason for the low price is, because the vendors receive a subsidy from the flatfish farming checkoff program committee. That’s why the price is so cheap. I love flatfish and other seafood. I hope the flatfish sale rises so the fish farmers can prosper. That’s why I ordered this. It looks like this. I’ll show you. It’s sealed in a vacuum pack. They say it’s a new technology! This is sterilized vacuum packaging. The inside is germ-free! So it’s very clean. The fillet has been sliced into thin pieces. It’s good that they made it clean and simple to eat. A pack of chojang (vinegary pepper sauce) is included. And 2 packs of wasabi and soy sauce. For solo drinkers like ourselves, when you’re full, this would be a good simple option to enjoy drinks with for just $7.9. And it’s really good that shipping is free. Frozen and refrigerated products are delivered in ice boxes, which is 3,000 KRW (2.7 USD) extra. Even with that included this cost just $7.9. Pretty good. This is aged sashimi. Fresh sashimi is chewy. Aged sashimi is less chewy, but has a sweeter flavor! Will this flatfish taste good? I’ll try and find out. *Thirsty Korean TV* It isn’t a easy-cut pack. What do we do? Use your teeth. Open it up like this. Us solo drinkers don’t use plates. So we’ll eat it from the tray it comes in. It looks like this. The fatty fin meat, called engawa, is also included. Let’s pour the chojang. Pouring the chojang. Soy sauce and wasabi. They’ve included Japanese fresh wasabi. I’m just gonna use the soy sauce and use my own wasabi which I like. I like the, Samgwang wasabi. Now the wasabi. That was very convenient! Solo drinking dish is ready! Today’s drink is, Baekseju (100 years drink), since I want to live until I’m 100 years old. I haven’t had it for a while. They said the sweet flavor will be strong since it’s been aged. I’ll try it just with wasabi and find out. This is a very simple solo drinking menu. I’ll try it now. The slices are very thin. I prefer thick slices. This is a bit thin. The thickness is similar to unboned sashimi. It’s that thickness, right? I’ll try it just with wasabi. To check the texture. It’s good folks. Freshly cut sashimi at restaurants has a chewy texture. But since this one’s been aged, it’s not as chewy. I’m not saying it just dissolves in your mouth. It’s just less chewy than fresh sashimi. But the sweetness and fattiness is about 2-3 times stronger. Aged sashimi is like that. It’s like the refrigerated sashimi products. I would have told you if there wasn’t any texture. But it does have some chewiness. They prepare the fish and ship it to you the next day. Delivery takes one day. Which isn’t bad. They say this product can be stored up to 4 days at 0 – 5 degrees (celsius). It’s pretty good and tasty. Nice fattiness! Charm! Charm! Charm~! Let’s try the fin meat. I think many of you like this part. I’ll have it with chojang. The fin. Engawa. Aged sashimi is good! It’s sold out at the moment. But they’ll restock. Shipping is free, so try some. It has a nice fatty flavor and the meat is sweet. This time with soy sauce. The meat isn’t that chewy. But there’s a nice fattiness as you chew. And there’s a nice sweetness. You’ve all tried aged flatfish sashimi. I don’t now how I can explain the taste in more detail. Our Minister of Oceans and Fisheries posted this on his social media, that’s why I ordered it. You all know what flatfish tastes like. But since the farmers are having a tough time, let’s help them out. That’s why I decided to make this video. There’s not much more to explain, it’s simply tasty. One drawback is the fact that the slices are a bit thin for me. Order from Gongyoung Shopping, not Gongyoung Home Shopping. It’s good. I have to eat 3 pieces at a time to be satisfied. This is what I like. With plenty of chojang. Let’s have a drink! Charm! Charm! Charm~! Nice! Baekseju goes well with flatfish! It’s tasty with no bad fishy smell. They prepare the fish and pack them in these new sterilized vacuum packages. So it has a very clean taste. The meat is very soft so people with bad teeth could eat this too. It’s aged sashimi. You’ve never tasted this before…(reciting movie line) Have it with wasabi. If you’re in your twenties, you won’t be familiar with eating it with just wasabi. Some of you may know. People usually have sashimi with chojang or soy sauce. It’s really tasty with just wasabi, like this. You should try it like this. Last shot! Charm! Charm! Charm~! *Final Verdict* Today I tried flatfish sashimi that’s being sold at a low price due to government subsidies. It simply a tasty aged sashimi. The amount is just enough for drinking solo. If you don’t eat that much or if you’ve just had a meal, this is enough for 2 people to share. But if you eat a lot, you should order the whole fish pack. A lot of you like flatfish and eat it often. So if you crave flatfish, The Minister of Oceans and Fisheries says that the flatfish farmers are having a tough time. So lets help them out. Show them the power of Thirsty Korean TV fans!
