Squid and Red Bell Pepper Stir-Fry

The Little Girl loves squid, any which way you cook it, she will eat it.   She says that she could eat squid every day. This is one of her favorite squid dishes.  Since it is the Lenten season I will be cooking this dish on Good Friday.

If you would like to try this dish, here's the recipe:
1 kilo squid
1 tablespoon oil
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1/3 cup red bell pepper, sliced into strips
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
2 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup green onion or leeks

1. Score each piece of squid to make a criss-cross pattern, then cut the squid into 2x2 inch squares.
2. In a saucepan, bring to a boil enough water to cover the squid, then drop the squid pieces in the boiling water.  Cook for about a minute, then take out squid from the saucepan.  Set aside.
3. Mix hoisin sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil and salt in a bowl.
4. Heat a wok, when hot add oil.  Saute garlic and ginger.  Add the bell pepper strips, then toss in squid.  Pour in the pre-mixed seasonings and simmer until sauce boils. Add the green onions.  Remove from pan, then serve hot.

I'll have my wife cook this. Looks really yummy Eileen. Why you did not make this as a profession instead of the CC world, I'll never know. You avoided sana dealing with people like Nino, and many others lol.
