Total time
Serves: 2 Servings
  • 3-4 c water
  • 2 c shrimp shells
Soup ingredients
  • ½ c Korean radish
  • ½ sliced onion
  • ½ c cabbage, bell pepper, carrots, leeks, etc
  • 1 cleaned/cut squid
  • 2 tb fish sauce
  • 1 ts sesame oil
  • 1 tb Korean red pepper flakes
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • ½ ts ginger
  • 3 green onions
  1. To make the stock, bring your water and shells to a rolling boil for about 15-20 minutes. Strain it through to collect the shells and set your broth aside.
  2. In the same pot, toss in your veggies, squid, fish sauce, sesame oil, pepper flakes, garlic, and ginger. Give everything a mix and set aside for 15 minutes.
  3. Set your pot on medium-high and re-introduce the broth to the pot. Just bring it to a bubble (you don't want to over cook squid). It's ready when the squid slightly curls and turns completely white.
  4. Turn off the heat and scatter in your green onions.
