Stir-fried fish cake is a very popular side dish in Korea. Korean fish cakes are called eomuk (어묵) or odeng (오뎅). Whenever I take my friends or family to a Korean restaurant, the fish cake side dish is usually one of the favorites. Korean fish cake is typically fairly cheap and easy to make, which is why a lot of restaurants will serve this as a complementary side dish.

Depending on where you live, you might also need to get fish sauce at the Asian market or online. The other ingredients, such as onions, garlic, soy sauce, black pepper, and olive oil are readily available at most local grocery stores or supermarkets.
