Golbaengi Muchim (Korean Spicy Sea Snail Mix w Noodles)
Community Recipe from
- 1 can(s) sea snails
- 8 ounce(s) korean thin noodles (somyeon)
- 1 piece(s) cucumber strips
- 1 piece(s) onion strips
- 1 piece(s) carrot strips
- 3 tablespoon(s) gochujang (korean red pepper paste)
- 1 tablespoon(s) gochugaru (red pepper flakes)
- 2 clove(s) garlic minced
- 1/2 tablespoon(s) soy sauce
- 2 tablespoon(s) brown sugar
- 2 tablespoon(s) vinegar
- 1 tablespoon(s) sesame seeds
- 1. Drain the liquid from the can and rinse the sea snails under running cold water for several minutes. Continue rinsing until bubbles dissipate or no longer appear.
- 2. Cut the sea snails into bite-sized pieces, or keep as is if larger pieces are desired. Prepare the vegetables accordingly by cutting them into 2-inch strips (see pics above).
- 3. Meanwhile, cook the noodles according to package directions, but make sure to add a generous amount of salt (1 tbsp). Rinse under cold water for a few minutes to prevent overcooking and drain. Sample a few noodles to ensure they are cooked, a little chewy but not too soft and mushy; they will not take longer than 5 minutes to cook through.
- 4. In a mixing bowl, combine 3 tbsp gochujang, 1 tbsp gochugaru, 1/2 tbsp soy sauce, 2 tbsp sugar, 2 tbsp vinegar, and minced garlic powder. Mix them all together with a tasting spoon until thoroughly mixed. Sample the sauce and adjust accordingly to taste preference.
- 5. In the mixing bowl, add the sea snails, sliced vegetables, and cold noodles. Mix thoroughly to coat (best to use gloves for mixing) and plate on a large platter or dish. Or, plating the noodles and sea snail mix separately is also okay (see pics). Enjoy!
- *The sea snails can be bought at most local Asian or Korean markets along with the somyeon noodles.
