Spicy Stir-Fry Squid Recipe


  • 4 medium squids. Cleaned and rinsed
  • 4 tbsp. sesame oil ( if not available, vegetable oil will do)
  • ½ cup of water
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 4 slices of ginger
  • 3 stalks of basil
  • 2 fresh chili peppers
  • 1 scallion
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • Seasoning: 4 tbsp. soy sauce

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Slice squid horizontally into small pieces. (To make sure that you get rings instead of slice, don’t cut open the squid after cleaning.)
  2. Blanch in water along with scallion  and ginger. Remove. (By blanching squid before cooking, you can prevent water from being released while cooking.)
  3. Over low heat, fry ginger in 3 tbsp. oil.
  4. When the ginger begins to curl, and squid, garlic, and chili peppers. Still well.
  5. Add all other ingredients and ½ cup of water. Allow to boil.

  7. Transfer to serving dish and serve.
