Cooking Korean: Ojingeochae muchim (spicy squid)
When I was traveling back from England I stopped at Yo!Sushi. It is a fun little place where the sushi goes about on the conveyer and you pick the plates you want. Different colors mean different prices. One of the dishes I chose was spicy squid. I love squid, so it was worth a try. It was delicious bright reddish orange squid on a plate of greens. Very very good . . . and the most expensive plate I got, but worth it. It was definitely not a particularly cheap airport lunch.
it looks fun right?
Randomly I was looking at recipes before going shopping (I had no food in the house due to traveling so much lately). I found a recipe for Ojingeochae muchim (spicy squid) at Maangchi's site that looked a lot like what I ate. Click on the link to go to the site and watch the video if your inclined. This recipe involves stirring the ingredients and that is all. It doesn't get easier. I halved the recipe as I didn't know if I'd like anything made with dried squid or not . . . half makes quite a lot.
Ninja got stuck in the squid . . .
Overall, I really like it. It was super easy to make and apparently keeps in the fridge for 1 month. It was very very spicy, which I like. You may want to use caution though. If you have any inclinaiton toward squid I would suggest it.
