Etymology[edit]

What is the etymology of this term? Badagnani (talk) 08:46, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

It literally means jang (장 condiment) for ssam (쌈 vegetable wrap). --Appletrees (talk) 03:20, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, I added that; but it's actually used for meat wrapped in a leaf, so I'm not sure I understand your use of "vegetable wrap." I assume that "jang" is Sino-Korean while "ssam" is a native word (not of Chinese origin). Badagnani (talk) 03:28, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

Seafood[edit]

Does ssamjang ever have a seafood flavoring? I just had some and it tasted and smelled a bit fishy. Badagnani (talk) 18:45, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

It can be depending on "cook"'s personal preference, but not widely practiced. In Southern regions (Jeolla and Gyeongsang provinces), smashed jeotgal can be added to ssamjang/doenjang for flavor.--Caspian blue 18:51, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
