aeriskitchen's picture
Spicy Fried Squid is a spicy fried squid dish. This can be used as both a side dish or as a main dish. As a main dish, you put it on top of your rice, or thin boiled noodles. Then mix the fried squid with rice or noodles and eat. Sometimes you can eat it with boiled bean sprouts (KongNaMul) instead of noodles. If you really like spicy food, this recipe might not be that spicy for you, so add more red pepper paste and red pepper powder.
Main ingredients:
  Squid 1 Large, cut into 1-inch bite size pieces (or 2 small squids)
  Onion 1⁄2 Large, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  Carrot 1⁄3 Large, cut diagonally into pieces

  Sesame oil 1 Teaspoon
  Sesame seeds 1⁄2 Teaspoon

2. Combine together the red pepper paste, red pepper powder, soy sauce, sugar, minced garlic, cooking wine, sesame oil, sesame seeds, and 1 or 2 pinches of black pepper powder.
