Korean Dried Shredded Squid for Side Dish O JING E CHAE
In Korean cuisine, dried shredded squid is eaten as anju (food to eat while drinking) and as banchan (small side dishes), such as the dish ojingeochae bokkeum, which is made by stir-frying dried shredded squid seasoned with a mixture of gochujang (chili pepper paste), garlics, and mullyeot (corn syrup-like condiment).
Ojingeochae bokkeum is a very popular side dish with a spicy, sweet and savory taste.
Instead of using fresh squid like other Korean dishes, dried shredded squid known as “ojingeo-chae ” or “jinmi-chae” is used, which gives ojingeochae bokkeum its special texture. The flavor comes from gochujang-based sauce and it is addictively delicious.
Ojingeochae bokkeum is great addition to any Korean meal and it’s especially popular with children who like the taste and texture.
