” Ojinguh Bokkeum ” Korean Style Stir Fried Squid

  in Korea , one uses much larger squid and scores the surface in a criss cross pattern. I personally prefer the smaller squid I used here today, the texture is so much different and, dare I say, better.  It is  a simple stir fry preparation.  Please make sure your pan is very hot and please don’t boil your squid.  A few short seconds  simmering in the sauce will suffice. I also suggest that you mix all the Ingredients for the sauce and check the taste before you add it to the pan so your squid get in and out of the pan as quickly as possible. >
