Nakji Bokum - Spicy Stir-Fried Octopus - 낙지붂음  

Nak-ji Bo-kum
Spicy Stir-Fried Octopus
낙지볶음

Nakji bokum is a very spicy octopus dish enjoyed by many Koreans.  Octopus tentacles are cut into bite-sized pieces then pan stir-fried with spicy gochujang (red chilli pepper paste) along with gochugaru (red chili pepper flakes), sesame oil, red/green chili peppers, green onions, carrots and onions. Different variation of this dish does exist as the octopus can be substituted with squid for less chewy texture and taste.  Non-Koreans may find this dish too spicy even diluted with rice that may come with this dish. Mixture of nakji bokum and steamed white rice is common to make nakji dupbop which is a dish known as octopus mixed rice.
