Fried Seasoned Cuttlefish (오징어채 볶음) is a Korean side dish that you can make easily and it keeps longer than other side dishes. This is also another good side dish for a lunch box for kids. 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. 😉

Prepare 3 cups (½ lb) of seasoned cuttlefish. If some pieces are too long, like this, cut them with scissors.
Put 2 Tbsp of cooking oil in a heated pan.
Then add 2 Tbsp of hot pepper paste, 1½ Tbsp corn syrup (or honey), 1 tbsp of cooking wine (or water), ½ Tbsp soy sauce, ½ Tbsp of sugar, ½ Tbsp minced garlic, and 1 dash of ginger powder.
Mix everything together. Cook the sauce for a minute on medium.
Then add the seasoned cuttle fish and stir fry for about 5 minutes.
Keep stirring it, so that the sauce will evenly coat the fish and not burn.
