DIRECTIONS

  • Combine ginger, soy sauce and mirin in a large bowl.
  • Add thinly sliced squid into the bowl and mix until all the squid is covered with the sauce. Allow squid to marinade for about 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes, heat wok or skillet (pan) at high heat, then add oil.
  • Remove squid from bowl (make sure any juices/marinate are left in the bowl). Reserve any marinate. Add squid into the hot pan.
  • Stir-fry squid quickly in the pan and cook until it changes colour (about 7 minutes). Work quickly as overcooked squid will become rubbery so don't over cook.
  • Pour marinate into the pan and stir quickly. (Marinated meat burns easily so it's important to work quickly).
  • Serve with steam rice and green vegetables.
  • Enjoy.
