Korean Barbecued Squid Rectangles Recipe

Serves/Makes: 6 - 8


  • 2 1/2 to 3 pounds fresh squid (oh jing), with body size of 8 to 9 inches
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons gochu jang (Korean red chili pepper paste), to taste
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons chopped scallion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon Korean sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
How to cook Korean Barbecued Squid Rectangles:
  • Clean the squid, remove the very thin black skin, inner stomach and contents. Remove the tentacles and reserve for another use. Rinse the body well in cold water and drain.
  • Cut the body into 4 to 6 rectangles. Score each pieces 3 times lengthwise and crosswise. Blanch each piece in boiling water for 3 seconds, then quickly remove and drain.
  • Prepare the seasoning. Mix into a paste all the ingredients except the squid, remembering that the gochu jang is a hot paste and should be added to taste. Mix the squid with the seasoning and let stand for 1/2 hour.
  • Broil the squid over charcoal or in a gas or electric broiler for only 2 minutes since squid toughens with excessive cooking. The squid may also be panfried with 1 teaspoon corn oil in a skillet over high heat, just enough to sear both sides of the rectangle. The barbecue, however, is the traditional method.
  • Serve the Korean Barbecued Squid Rectangles warm with steamed rice.
