【Squab Crispy Sauce】

          1. Wash the squab and remove the lungs and set aside.

          2. Boil boiling water, add ginger and soju, add squab water for 3 minutes and set aside.

          3.

(Soak the cooked squab in hot water. If you want it to be more flavorful, you can soak it overnight)

          4. The next day, pick up the squab, let it cool and air-dry for about two hours, then stir the squab crispy sauce evenly, and evenly apply the squab, preferably twice, and then air-dry for more than 3 hours.
