  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  2. Squid -
    Carefully remove skin from squid.
    Cut into long narrow strips, then cut strips into about 1 inch lengths.
    Very lightly salt and pepper the squid strips and let stand about ten minutes.
  3. Batter
    Mix dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.
    Add water and whisk quickly. (Don’t over-mix)
    The resulting batter should be slightly thicker than tempura batter
  4. Cooking
    Heat cooking oil over high heat (350 degrees or test with a drip of batter – oil is hot when oil bubbles and batter floats to surface almost immediately)
    Dredge individual squid strips with flour, dip in batter, and fry until a light golden brown.
  5. Serve with Choganjang.
