With eomuk, you can make soups, stews, and also stir-fried together and it make a good sidedish. We are going to use best of best ingredients. You can’t find this kind of eomuk in anywhere else. I’ll show you, what I use. This morning I bought this, from my fish market. Three types of seafood I’m using. Cod and shrimp. Shrimp makes it very special, very chewy. This guy is squid. Ooh, large. Very fresh. This one is, I froze. You can use frozen seafood too. Half a pound cod, so you need to follow my measurements very exactly. Chop this into small pieces. Chunk. So that we can use this food processor later, very easily we can cut it. This is shrimp. Last night I transferred this from the freezer to my refrigerator, so now really nice. Easily, you can peel off the shell like this or you can buy just already shelled. Shelled and cleaned shrimp. Cut the back part, like this. You see inside clean, but sometimes you will see the line, so take off this Let’s take care of my squid. Small squid. So cut it. And. So, remove this way. Intestine. Lift this. So we are going to make really white color. Nice beautiful white color eomuk. Add this and then, you see this part? So simply, remove this. So let’s chop it up, this squid and then put it here. And shrimp. Just around one pound. Let’s process this! We need garlic so two cloves garlic and also onion. Onion is for one pound, around quarter cup. So this is quarter cup This is my quarter cup. So around there. Salt. One teaspoon. And sugar. One or two teaspoons. I’ll use one teaspoon, and then we need some pepper. This is white pepper, so because I like to make the white flesh, so I don’t want to mix with other colors, so I’m using just white pepper but you can also use ground black pepper. Quarter teaspoon. Some vegetable cooking oil. I’ll use grape seed oil. One tablespoon We need some glue. All this fish is really make it stick together, flour and starch. So all purpose flour Quarter cup. And this is potato starch powder. You can use corn starch too. So potato starch, quarter cup. So total, dried flour, so half cup together, so quarter cup, quarter cup. So we use this and then one more! One more item is the egg white. Egg yolk, don’t throw away. You can use for your massage. Almost two minutes, I just grind this. It was to be really really soft, like creamy Transfer this to the bowl. Really pretty color, white. But if you like to add some like more colorful stuff here, and I suggested some green chili pepper, really chopped finely spicy one, it’ll give you good flavor. This thing is not just a flour dough, expensive fish. So I’m going to use this all my scraper. Let’s cook! Three cups of vegetable oil. Today we make this way, and then my next video, I’m going to make side dish with this. You can use this in any dishes. Stir-fried, stewed, and kimchi jjigae . Kimchi stew you can add this. You can make kimbap with this even. First, just put some oil here. Not sticky. Prevent from sticking. Spread. Okay, then roll. And then, So, again. Turn it over, this. Really low heat, we have to cook. Dry, and wipe off excess oil. So inside, it’s like this. Can you see how elastic it is? Oh my god, it looks good. You can eat it, just as a snack, but if you use skewer, it’ll look better. Like this. Right here. Ketchup. Serve this to your family or friends or for yourself.
