Spicy Korean Chilli Paste (Gochujang) Squid
I have been hooked on a particular Korean cooking reality show for the past couple of weeks and the result of this obsession is my craving for Korean food. Just last week alone I made Bibimbap twice for dinner AND a huge pot of spicy vegetarian korean stew on a separate day for the husband and me. It doesn't seem like this craving for all food Korean is slowing down any time soon either, because last night I had the inspiration to come up with this spicy korean chilli paste (or Gochujang) Squid, which tastes AWESOME, by the way.
This dish is really really quick to make - just 10 minutes of prep time spent on cutting the onions, spring onions, ginger and chillies, removing the skin and cleaning the insides of the squid and mixing the sauce, followed by 5 minutes of cooking the ingredients over high heat on the stove. The sauce is spicy and sweet, and the squid crunchy with a refreshing citrus taste thanks to the freshly squeezed lemon juice. It is perfect for a super quick and hearty meal with steamed rice - just drizzle that sauce over your rice and take bite after bite of the delicious squid and onions, you will definitely make this again soon!
