One day, the Auntie followed me to the market. I saw some squid (鱿鱼, yóuyú) on sale and thought: “Mmm…it’s been ages since we’ve cooked squid.”
Remember my stir-fried curry squid? It’s been that long.
Thankfully, the ayi said that she knew how to cook squid. Phew, relief!!!
I left her at it and she surprised me with this:
Nice, right? Even the kids love it because the squid is tender.
Anyway, she told me that she first scalded the squid.
Then, she stir fried the capsicum / bell peppers (甜椒, tiánjiāo) vegetables and added the squid.
I think there is some garlic in there.
I’m saving this on my blog in case I need a squid recipe one day.
The kids are a bit tired of it now as they have been having it almost every week.
I’m desperate for a fish recipe actually – who has the easiest and tastiest sweet and sour fish without vinegar or sugar???
Please, please share. A million thanks!!!
