Inspired by Korean tteokbokki, this crowd-pleasing recipe combines plump shrimp and chewy rice cakes in our irresistibly savory and spicy sauce—balanced by a touch of cooling crème fraîche. We’re also tossing in thin ribbons of cabbage, which provide heartiness and just a hint of contrasting texture.
