Korean Recipe for Spicy Odeng – Seasoned Fried Fishcake

양념 오뎅
Sweet, savory, and simply, addictively, delicious, Odeng was the number one favorite side dish served at my former restaurant. Customers would often purchase quart and half gallon sized containers of it to take home.
This recipe is a spicy version of Odaeng, and works well with any flat sheet style of fishcake, however the very thin fishcake sold in rolls is best. These are available in the refrigerated section of most larger and some smaller Asian stores.
