Squid and Pepper with Shrimp Balls Recipe

Squid and Pepper with Shrimp Balls Recipe

Ingredients :

500 g squid

2 cups green peppers (capsicum)

1 teaspoon sugar

1 tablespoon crushed black bean sauce

2 green chilies

2 slices ginger root, peeled

2 scallions

1 tablespoon rice wine

1 tablespoon soy sauce

20 deep-fried shrimp balls

Salt to taste

Oil for deep-frying


Method :

Discard the squid's head, ink bag and soft backbone. Peel off the squid's skin and make a criss-cross pattern on the outside. Then cut into slices not much bigger than a matchbox. Cut the green peppers into slices roughly the same size as the squid. Finely chop the ginger root, onion and green chili. Deep-fry the squid for 1 minute, remove and drain. Pour off the excess oil leaving about 2 tablespoons in the wok. Toss in the ginger root, onion and chilies followed by green peppers. Add salt and sugar. Stir for a short while then add the squid together with the crushed black bean sauce, rice wine or sherry and soy sauce. Cook for about 1 1/2 minutes and blend everything well. Serve with deep-fried shrimps balls decorating the edge of the plate.
