"Hi Maangchi, When I saw this recipe I remembered that I had bought some dried shredded squid with no clear idea of how I was going to use it. All I did was substitute the squid for the pollack. Delicious! Thank you. You're a wonderful teacher! Steve Farber Reynoldsburg, OH"

"Hi Maangchi, I've been following you for quite a while now and love your recipe videos and your wonderful book. I've been making kimchi, kkakdugi, pancakes, you name it, and love your food. Today I found live blue crabs at the Asian market and decided to give your kkotgetang a try. They didn't have some of the ingredients so I "punted" and made some substitutions while preserving the spirit of what you wrote. I used kkakdugi in place of fresh radish (they didn't have any at the store) and yu choi sum and red cabbage in the place of the other veg you called for. The biggest difference is that I par-cooked the crabs, saved and strained the broth and removed the shell and gills and cut-up the crabs before completing the recipe. It came out delicious and rich with the earthiness of the doenjang and spiciness of the gochujang. Some last minute gochugaru took the whole thing over the top. Your work is so appreciated. I am always cooking something from your book and always repeating my favorites. Thank you for everything you do, Steve"
