This is served as a panchan, with a Korean meal.


  • 2 tsp corn oil
  • 3 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 1 slice fresh ginger - (1/4" thick) crushed
  • 1/2 tsp gochu jang (Korean chili/red pepper paste)
  • 1 cup dried anchovies
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame seeds 


Heat the oil in a wok or skillet. Add the sugar, soy sauce, garlic, ginger and gochu jang all at once. Stir-fry over low heat for 1 minute.

When the mixture bubbles, add the anchovies and stir rapidly for about 1/2 minute to coat each anchovy with the seasonings. Stir in the sesame seeds, remove from the heat, and turn out into a small dish.

Serve cool or at room temperature with any kind of Korean food.
