Both of my parents immigrated here from Seoul with their families. Since both of my parents work, my grandparents in my mom's side would take care of me and my siblings. My grandma made lots of delicious Korean food but the dish that I remember and miss the most is her soy sauce marinated crab, also known as ganjang gejang. It is a pretty tedious dish to prepare which is why my mom can't make it today. I loved this dish and it remains as one of my favorite foods to this day. It not only tasted good but connected me to Korean culture and gave me pride in its cuisine. I hope that in the future, I can learn how to make this dish in memory of my grandma and to share my culture with others.
