  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high. Cook mushrooms, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 4 to 6 minutes. Add shallots, ginger and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until just beginning to brown, 4 to 6 minutes.
  2. Stir in gochujang and cook until fragrant and brick red, 1 minute. Stir in kimchi, scraping up any gochujang from the bottom of the pan, and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add soy sauce and 5 cups water and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer until kimchi is tender, about 20 minutes. Stir in fish, cover, remove from heat and let sit until cooked through, about 5 minutes. (The residual heat from the stew will gently cook the fish.)
  4. Divide stew among bowls and top with scallions and sesame seeds.
