Mellisa -
It's one of my favorite banchan, too. It's supposed to be rich in calcium and other minerals. :) I am going to try to post the recipe some time next week or later. Meanwhile, try the following steps if you can't wait:
1. Remove the guts/internals of anchovies(3cup) 2. In a bowl, mix the following ingredients to make the sauce: chili paste(3T) + sugar(3T) + soy sauce(1T) + minced garlic (2T) + oil(1T) 3. Pan fry them dry (w/o oil) for couple minutes over medium heat 4. Add the sauce from Step 2 to anchovies. 4. Mix them well together. 5. Add corn syrup(3T) and heat for couple more minutes.
