“Jukkumi bokkem” Spicy stir-fried small octopus

완성4 쭈꾸미It’s always a great pleasure to enjoy a dish made of seasonal ingredients. Spring is the right season when we eat Jukkumi(주꾸미), small octopus. Jukkumi looks like a small version of octopus, but the taste and the texture are quite different.

[Ingredients] Jukkumi(주꾸미, squid), green onion(파), garlic(마늘), dried red pepper powder(고추가루), soy sauce(간장), mirim(미림), maesil juice(Japanese plum juice, 매실즙) or sugar(설탕), flour(밀가루)

쭈꾸미 양념1. Wash small octopus thoroughly with flour.

2. Slice green onions.

3. Make spicy sauce with 3 spoons of minced garlic, 2 spoons of dried red pepper powder, 2 spoons of soy sauce and 2 spoons of maesil juice or 1.5 spoon of sugar.
(You can add 1/2 spoon of mirim if you have one)

4. Mix small octopus and sliced green onions with the sauce and marinate them for a while(30~60 minutes).

쭈꾸미 굽기5. Stir-fry the marinated small octopus in the frying pan over the mid-to-high heat.

Does it look so scarily spicy? ^^ Once you’re addicted to spicy foods, you cannot live without them.


    1. Thanks for your comment! It looks too red, but not too much spicy though. ^^ Maybe I will be able to serve you when you come to visit Seoul. ^^
