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