But the ones I bought from the supermarket are frozen so I decided to cook them as paksiw. Well with a lot of green sili, spring onions and crushed black pepper it was good.

1/2 head garlic, crushed
1 thumb size ginger cut into thin slices
1 medium size onion, sliced
1 tbsp. crushed black pepper
1/4 c. vinegar
3-5 pcs. whole green sili
1 stalk spring onions, cut into 2” length
cooking oil
