Sauteed Dried Shrimp (Maleun Saewoo Bokkeum)
Great Korean side dish made with small dried shrimps. Good for lunchboxes.
Prep Time 3 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 13 minutes
- 5 oz dried pink shrimp (150 g) about 3 cups in volume
- 2 Tbsp canola oil (vegetable oil)
- 4 Tbsp sugar
- 1 Tbsp rice syrup (조청 Jochung) or maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp soy sauce (JinGanjang)
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1 Tbsp cooking sake or mirin
Make the sauce ahead in a separate bowl by adding and mixing 1 T each of soy sauce, sugar and sake (or mirin).
Heat oil in a frying pan over med high heat.
When oil is hot (when it flows around like water), add the shrimp to the pan and sauté for 3 min.
Lower heat to medium and sprinkle sugar evenly on shrimp and sauté for another 3 min.
Lower heat to low and sprinkle the sauce (made in step 1) all around the shrimp so that it’s all nicely mixed. Continue mixing and sauteing for 3 more minutes.
Drizzle rice syrup (조청) or maple syrup on the shrimp mixture. Turn heat up to medium and continue stirring and frying for 2 minutes or until they look nicely browned.
You can save these in room temperature for a week or more and much longer in the fridge but won't taste as good. This served as a great side dish for the lunch I made with Miyeok Gook.
