Introduction

Nakji Bokum is a very spicy octopus dish enjoyed by many Koreans. Different variation of this dish do exist as the octopus can be substituted with squid for less chewy texture and taste. Some may find this dish too spicy even diluted with rice that accompanies this dish. Nakji Bokum is a very spicy octopus dish enjoyed by many Koreans.

  • This is great, but I did notice that the ingredient list stated that there was only 10 oz of octopus, not the pound noted on the list. I did a quick recalculation and had 8 servings [26 gr protein] and 159 cal.s, with only 519 of sodium! Makes a great dish - 9/1/12
