Fried Garlic and Pepper Squid

The Little Girl requested for another squid dish for dinner.  She loves to eat squid. 

So for dinner tonight I made a Thai squid dish called Thod Grathiam Prig Thai Meuk, English translation - Fried Garlic and Pepper Squid.  I found the recipe in a magazine a couple of years ago. I probably made this dish twice before but never for the "little girl".  While I was cooking she came up to me and asked to have a taste.  She loves it.  It makes me very happy when she likes the meals I make for her.

This is a tasty dish because the squid is marinated in garlic, fish sauce and chicken powder.  You can serve it without a dipping sauce but I like to serve it with sweet chili sauce.

Here is the recipe:

100 grams squid
50 grams minced garlic
15 ml fish sauce (preferably Thai because it tastes less salty)
15 ml soy sauce
15 grams sugar
60 grams all purpose flour
1 cube chicken powder
dash of ground pepper

Cut the squids into halves to thin paper-form and then slice into one inch strips.  Mix all the ingredients to coat the squid.  Dee-fry until golden brown.  Serve with sweet and sour sauce or sweet-chili sauce.
