Ojinguh Moochim - Cold Squid with Cucumbers - (오징어 무칩)

I went to the K-market yesterday and was originally planning to make some ojinguh gook, but last minute decided to just make ojinguh moochim instead. This goes really well with choong-moo kimbap (basically just rice and gim).

First wash and cut two squid. I don't know why some people get so freaked out about squid but can eat calamari. =P

Cut up the squid into two inch pieces like so and then throw some salt on it and give it a thorough wash.

Meanwhile bring a pot of water to a boil and then add the squid and let it boil until fully cooked. This usually takes 3-5 minutes.

After it's all cooked, rinse it thoroughly under cold water and set it aside to drain.

In a small bowl mix together the following: 2 TB red pepper powder, 1 TB red pepper paste, 1 TB sesame seeds, 1/2 TB minced garlic, 1 TB vinegar, 3/4 TB honey powder, 3/4 TB soy sauce, 2 TB rice wine, 1 TB corn starch, dash of pepper and ginger powder.

Then slice up 1/2 onion, 1 green onion, and 1 small cucumber.

Add the squid and sauce and mix it thoroughly.

You're now ready to plate and serve!

You can eat it immediately or store it in the fridge for later. ENJOY!
