Korean Anchovies Banchan Side Dish


  • 1 cup dried anchovies
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon gochujang
  • 1 teaspoon sugar


  1. Combine dried anchovies, vegetable oil, gochujang, and sugar in a bowl until anchovies are evenly coated.
  2. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
Mealthy tip:

Gochujang is a Korean red pepper paste usually consisting of chile powder, fermented soybeans, glutinous rice, sweetener (often brown sugar or corn syrup) and salt. It is sweet, savory, and spicy and a little bit of gochujang goes a long way. You can purchase Korean ingredients in Asian and Korean markets and in online stores. Make these side dishes ahead of time and store them in resealable containers to enjoy throughout the week.

I opted to leave out the spicy pepper and added soy sauce to this recipe. It worked! Always wondered what to do with anchovies.
