Squid Tentacles Stir Fry, its an interesting dish as we normaly dont cook squid tentacles alone. When we clean the squid head and innards have been removed from the squid body tube. The tentacles and body tube are edible and we used to cook the tube and avoid tentacles. When you clean the squid tentacles please remove the pink color skin. Fried squid tentacles are crisp and have a delicate sweetness. Over cook them and the result is like chewing rubber so please take care while frying. If you get baby octopus then can make this dish with that. Here I had some home made plum sauce so used that with squid tentacles it came out really well. So here is recipe for you all to try.
- Squid Tentacles 200gm
- Garlic 4 cloves, chopped
- Red Capsicum 1 medium size, sliced
- Baby Corn few, sliced
- Snow Peas few, sliced
- Red Chilli Flakes 1 to 2 tsp
- Plum Saue 1/2 cup
- Brown sugar 1 tsp
- Lime juice 2 tsp
Clean and rinse squid tentacles with water. Drain water well. Now marinate squid tentacles with 1/4 cup plum sauce, 1 tsp of lemon juice and salt. Keep it for 30 minutes.
Heat a fry pan with little oil on medium flame and fry marinated squid tentacles until its half cooked, dont fry completely it will be hard then. Keep this aside.
Heat the wok until very hot add 1 tbsp of oil and swirl it around to coat the side. Now add crushed garlic and saute for few seconds. Now add sliced baby corn and saute for few seconds, add snow peas and red capsicum slices and stir well. Now add red chili flakes and combine everything well. Add 1/4 cup plum sauce, 1 tsp of lemon juice, salt and brown sugar. Combine everything well. Now add half fried squid tentacles and mix well. Keep stirring for 2 to 3 minutes. Check salt if need add accordingly. Remove from fire and serve with rice or as it as an appetizer.
NB: If you dont have plum sauce then use your favorite sauce or tamatoe sauce. Chili please adjust according to your taste. Enjoy cooking..
