Sweet and Spicy Squid Recipe

Without further ado, here’s the recipe.

Sweet and Spicy Squid – serves 4 to 6 persons.

Sweet and Spicy Squid Ingredients:

* 1.5 lbs squid ( I used frozen), thawed , backbone removed
* 3 cloves garlic,minced
* 1 piece chili, ( siling labuyo) minced ( you can add more if you prefer more spicy)
* 3 tbsp soy sauce
* 2 tbsp brown sugar
* 3 tbsp tomato ketchup
* 3 tbsp cooking oil

How To Cook Sweet And Spicy Squid:

1). Drain squid in a colander for about 15 -20 minutes. Slice each squid into 3 to 4 pieces  to produce squid rings.

2). Heat oil in cooking pan or wok then add in the garlic and pepper. Saute  for about two minutes  while constantly tossing to prevent the garlic from being burnt.

3).Add in the sugar and the soy sauce and stir mixture for 2 minutes.

4). Add in squid and let cook for about 15-20 minutes, until the squid is tender. Stir occasionally. At this stage, squid will produce more water.

5).Once the squid is tender, add in ketchup and stir until the ketchup is evenly distributed. Turn off heat. Best serve while it’s hot!
