Step 1: Prepare ingredients

Fresh squid washed, cut off the ink sacs, bones, eyes and skin to make the ink whiter. Next, cut the squid into bite-sized pieces. You can cut into circles or cut diagonal lines to create a filling for the ink to absorb the spices and make it more beautiful. Continue to remove the fishy smell by blanching squid in boiling water with a little white wine and a little minced ginger. After draining, you will marinate the squid with a little pepper, monosodium glutamate, seasoning seeds and minced onion and garlic.

Notes on How to Make Sweet and Sour Squid

The vegetable ingredients in the dish can be changed according to personal taste. If you can’t eat bell pepper, you can replace it with cucumber, tomato or pineapple to keep the dish colorful. Do not peel all the cucumbers, just peel a few lines along the left body to keep the crispiness after stir-frying, for fragrant you should choose freshly peeled fruit, avoid buying those that have been left in the air for a long time.

Squid must be completely drained before seasoning, so the squid will not be fishy. A little trick to help you limit the water when stir-frying is to add a little cornstarch in the marinade. You have to stir-fry with high heat and quickly so that the squid is cooked evenly, not tough, but still retains its crispness and natural sweetness.
