Like other Korean side dishes, you serve this with rice, soup, and other side dishes for a Korean meal. If you like spicy food and seafood, I highly recommend that you to try this recipe. 😉

Tip for This Dish:
- Keep the stove on a medium temperature.
- If you cook this too long or at too high of a temperature, your cuttlefish will be hard, which you will not want.
Add ½ tbsp of soy sauce, 1 tbsp of cooking wine, 2 tbsp of red pepper paste, 2 tbsp of corn syrup, 1 tbsp of sugar, ½ tbsp of garlic, and 1 dash of ginger powder. Mix all together.
1 minute later, add 3 cups of seasoned cuttlefish.
Mix until the cuttlefish is completely covered with the sauce.
Fry it for about 5 minutes.
When it’s almost done, sprinkle 1 tsp of sesame seeds on top.
