Homemade fish cakes (Eomuk: 어묵)


(upbeat music) Hi everybody! Today we are going to learn how to make eomuk. Homemade eomuk. Korean style fish cake. Are you excited? Many many people requested this recipe. 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. And if you don’t like ketchup, forget about ketchup, just eat it! Mmm Mmmm Really delicious. This really good snack. And also it can be a really good appetizer, if you have a big party, just, you know, small size make it smaller. Chewy and sweet and a little salty, awesome! Mmm Today, we made eomuk, Korean fish cake. I cannot find this top quality in anywhere. Homemade food is the best. It’s microphone. I can sing. (laughs) Enjoy my recipe. See you next time! Byeee~!

  13. Oh wow, really cannot believe I found this recipe. I used to get fish cakes with noodles from a Chinese restaurant in Glasgow but they kept the fish cakes for Chinese people only and refused to serve me…eat off the English menu…but I like the authentic Chinese
    Thank you 🙏

  14. This is so good in gimbap. My first foster mom used fish cake in her gimbap. I use to sneak pieces of fish cake when we made gimbap

  15. Thank you, I did not know that making your own fish cake was so easy. Just one question; how to dispose of the used oil?

  16. 한국에서는 오뎅이라고 하는데 일본어로는 오뎅이 '어묵국'이란 뜻으로 아예 요리이름이라고 하더라구요

  17. I wonder if I could load the fish paste into a ziplock bag and cut the corner as to use it like a Piping Bag for cake icing. Then just squirt it out in the oil similar to the way you make a churro

  18. Wow, I've been looking for this recipe for a very long time. Thank you for sharing this amazing way of cooking! Do you by chance know how to make Taiwanese Duck Blood Cake (is a dark colored rectangular rice cake and paired with hoisin sauce), and Taiwanese Iron Quail Eggs? Please let me know, thanks.

  19. I always wondered how fish cakes were made! What a neat way to use all those different sea creatures. I'm definitely trying this. No breading or flour or anything! That is great. Thanks Maangchi!

  20. Hi Maangchi…this looks delicious. I would like to try this. Question to you is if I can fry this in a small amount of oil not deep frying? Can I also bake this with small amount of oil?

  21. Massage with the egg yolk? Nah, I'll eat it 🙂 Presuming I'm not too bothered about making a super white rascist fish cake I'm guessing the yolk, squid skin, etc would be OK as it is just more protein?

  22. Okay but this was a really good tutorial but can we talk about how cute you are like omg. And the way u explain everything precisely is soo sweet !! Thank you I defo want to try this now

  23. I dont know if this will sound ridiculous but, can I use blender instead ? We dont have food processor cause we're too broke. :<<
    PS. Kindly notice me jeballll

  24. 가게에서만 봤는데 직접하는 거 보니까 너무 신기하고 맛있어보인다♡ 완전히 고급어묵

  25. Chinese fans are here! 🙂 I made a dish with your recipe, it's too delicious! everybody should try once because it's not too difficult even you don't know cook.

  26. Thank you so much! There is no Asian supermarket in my city and I have to drive over an hour to get things like this. Now I can make it myself! Thanks!
