Stir-fried Squid

My parents love Korean food and seafood as well as I do so I decided to make a Korean Stir-fried Squid dish. I had almost all the necessary ingredient, but the end result was still tasty. My parents approved of it and was surprised at how it came out. Korean food is known to be salty and quite spicy for some to handle, so I made a healthy but tasty stir-fried recipe. It’s low in sodium and it wasn’t too spicy. Of course, you can always add a tbs more of pepper flakes and soy sauce.

Ingredients:

1 large squid (1 lb)
2 tbs soy sauce
5 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbs sugar
1 tbs hot pepper flakes (2 tbs optional)
1 green chili pepper (optional)
1 carrot, sliced diagonally
1 medium onion, sliced
1 green onions (optional)
1 tsp sesame oil

Directions:
1. In a mixing bowl, make hot paste by mixing 5 minced cloves of garlic, soy sauce, hot pepper flakes, and sugar. Set aside.

2.In a pan. Add olive oil and first add carrots and stir fry for about 2 minutes under high heat. Then add onions and once onions turn slightly golden, add 1 lb squid.

3. Mix well then add in hot paste under med-high heat. Frozen squid will add water to the recipe so cook until liquid has slightly dissolved.

4. When done, turn off stove and mix in sesame oil and mix. Then serve while warm. It can be eaten with a side of rice.

I love food and taking pictures of them and consider myself to be a big foodie! My favorite meal of the day is breakfast since it's full of delicious items such as pancakes, waffles, bacon, and french toast. Coffee is a must for the morning because of the wonderful aroma and the taste. I love dark chocolates, but I like to have an occasional milk or white chocolate.
