Found along the west coast of the Korean Peninsula, Jjukkumi (or webfoot or short-arm octopus) lacks nothing but mere size in contrast to his brothers and sister like nakji (small octopus), squid and more.
Regarded as an icon spring item, its arrival after the winter times is definitely a welcome boon to supplement sparse meals. They have various nutritious benefits such as a lower caloric count than octopus and squid, and being a great source of protein.
Difference between Octopus & Webfoot Octopus
- Octopus is known more for its soft texture. As such, it is often used for soupy food or noodles related dishes.
- Webfoot octopus has short legs so that explains its more chewy texture. It is often used for stir-frying, grilling but above all, Koreans still think that they are the most delicious when cooked in a very spicy way.
- There’s even a saying: “Bom Jukkumi, Gaeul Nakji” (봄 주꾸미, 가을 낙지), which means "Jukkumi for spring, Nakji for fall.”
Consisting of chopped webfoot octopus, vegetables and red pepper sauce, Stir-fried Webfoot Octopus (or Jjukkumi Bokkeum, 쭈꾸미볶음) is a classic, well loved Korean comfort food dish thanks to its perfect harmony of seafood and spiciness. Koreans usually eat shellfish soup with Jjukkumi Bokkeum (since it is served spicy) so as to reduce the sensation of hotness.
