Fresh, succulent squid is a treat on its own, but it's especially delicious when allowed to char over the grill. Though the classic Filipino toyo-sili-calamansi flavor blend holds its own appeal, it’s worth looking toward other cultures for a welcome variation—just like this Korean Grilled Stuffed Squid.

Stuffed with red rice and slather on a gochujang marinade and you’ve got one unique infusion of Filipino and Korean-style appetizer or main—full of heat, nutty with a hint of sweetness, and whole lotta umami.
