Fried Squid (o-jin-geo bok-keum)

Posted Jun 29 2009 5:08pm
If you need some guidance with the ingredients, you can check my Korean Cooking 101. ;)

Ingredients:
1/4 c. red pepper powder
1 tbsp. red pepper paste
chopped garlic
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. corn syrup
1 tbsp. sesame oil
1/4 tsp. salt
pinch of black pepper
carrots
onions
green pepper
cabbage
squash
green onions
olive oil
1 squid
sesame seeds

Step 1:
First, make the sauce. I added red pepper powder, red pepper paste, chopped garlic, sugar, corn syrup, sesame oil, salt, and black pepper. Then mix.

Step 2:
Chop your vegetables. I used carrots, onions, green pepper, and green onion. You can use cabbage, mushroom, squash, and so on. It is basically up to you. :)

Step 3:
Grab a frying pan, and add olive oil to coat. Once the pan it hot, add the sauce. Mix it with a wooden spoon. The heat from the stove will soften the sauce and produce liquids. This will only take a minute or two.
Then add your vegetables. I added the carrots, onions, and green peppers. Save your chopped green onions for last. Stir your vegetables until they get a little soft. I would say about 2-5 minutes.
Then add your squid. You can buy it already cut at the market or use one squid. If you use the squid you bought, make sure to peel off the skin, throw away the inside, and wash it.
Cook until everything is done. Then toss in the chopped green onions for the last minute or two.
Then transfer the fried squid onto a plate and top it off with sesame seeds. You can eat this as a side dish with rice and kim-chi.

Step 4:
If you don't want to eat it as a side dish, you can eat it as spaghetti style... lol~ This is what we did with the left over the next day... wheee~ It was delicious! :)

Cook somen noodles, rinse it, and drain the water. Put the noodles on the plate and top it with the fried squid. I reheated the squid, and added cabbage and squash.


This weekend, I bought couple of things. :/ The first place I checked out was Forever 21.
I've been wanting to get this watch, but what held me back was not too sure how the quality of the watch is. Luckily, for me it was on sale. It was only $4.99 compared to the original price of $14.80. What a good deal!... wheee~

Then I went to Icing by Claires.
I've been wanting to get this headband, but it never goes on sale. It still wasn't on sale... lol~ :P The only reason I bought it is because I had a gift certificate.

Lastly, I ended up at MAC in the Macys.
I've been looking high and low for a light, coral lipstick that fits my skin. I finally found one I love... wheee~ It's Ravishing!!!


I'm SORRY but I need to apologize!!! I lied about my foundation numbers. I got it checked this weekend at MAC. I just assumed I was this number, but I was wrong! :X Here's my updated foundation at MAC and MUFE.

MAKE UP FOR EVER (HD Foundation):
winter: #120
summer: #128

MAC:
winter: NC30
summer: NC37

I'm 100% sure about my summer colors, but not for the winter. I'm assuming that's my winter colors, because the last time I got it matched. :X
