Korean Fish Cake and Octopus Stir Fry Bento (생선 케이크와 낙지 볶음)

by - Monday, May 20, 2013


So many new and surprising things happened to me lately. In the middle of my excitement preparing the future trip to Kyoto, a sudden duty from campus that I have to join a community service in Cilodong Bogor, East Java, for a month has made my world turning down wildly. I have to race with time to make my very first passport *grin* quickly and finish everything dealing with teaching 3 weeks faster that the scheduled normal semester. Even it feels so hard to find spare time just to breathe *woooaaaa. I just wish that I'll still be able to blog during my stay there. If not, I'll be MIA for couples of weeks :D

Some weeks ago, I saw a post of delicious Korean Stir-Fried Squid (Ojinguh Bokkeum) at Indonesia Eats. Reading the ingredients and staring at the photos taken by Mbak Pepy just made me drool. I didn't have squid but had plenty of cooked cut octopus and a small pack of Korean fish cake (odeng). 


Altering the main ingredient with what I had was not a big sin. My octopus and fish cake stir fry simply tasted amazing. I used Kecap Manis (Indonesian sweet soy sauce) instead soy sauce. But I reduced the amount as it already tastes sweet. I pan fried the fish cake until half-done at first just to make it not too soggy after being mixed with the sauce. I enjoyed my Korean stir fry with brown and red rice onigiris. I added two white flowers made of radish to garnish my bento :D. To get the recipe, just refer to Indonesia Eats. Thank you Mbak Pepy for the great bokkeum (stir fry) recipe. Love it tons!


To end this post, I want to say my BIG thank you to Mommy Mimo for surprisingly sending me this beautiful and elegant black bento box complete with a couple of spoon and fork :D. Thank you sooooo much! LOVE LOVE LOVE :D

Hopefully I can see ya soon dear friends ^^

  7. @Megan: Dear Megan, wow I miss you ^^. Thank you so much. I recenty love to make simple adult bentos as I found out that they are so practical and time saver :D. Yes, I first made the flowers from blanched carrot but change them with radish one as the carrot flowers couldn't boost the color contrast :D
