  1. Wash the pepper well and remove the cap of the peppers. Big ones are cut in halves and give small ones a little score. Slice garlic thinly.
  2. Heat a large skillet or a wok over medium heat then add cooking oil and sliced garlic. Stir fry the garlic for a bit, about 30 seconds.
  3. Add anchovies and stay fry about 1 to 2 minutes. This way the fish smell from the anchovies will cook out.
  4. Add soy sauce, mirin and prepared peppers. Stir fry for 3 to 4 minutes or until all the liquid has gone.
  5. Add sugar, honey and maesilaek (plum extract) or maple syrup. Stir fry additional for 3 to 4 minutes or until all the ingredients are well combined.
  6. Remove from heat and top it up with some sesame seeds. Enjoy with warm cooked rice, kimchi and other banchan (side dishes)!
