Carcasses of squid cut on the one hand, cleaned from the remaining chords and any intestines.
Peel the garlic and ginger, garlic cut into plates, ginger - a small cube.
Cut the pepper diagonally or in a small cube, remove the seeds and partitions. Number of pepper depends on love to acute.
Now for the fun part.
You can just slice the squid strips.
But we are not looking for easy ways.
Here is how the song - "all you need skill, training, workout".
Put the squid carcass outside on the cutting Board and make cuts across the carcass cross on cross, trying not to cut through the flesh. The sharper the knife-the better, the smaller the step cuts-the more beautiful it will turn out.
Then cut the squid into pieces about 4x4 cm.
In boiling, salted water, put the squid and cook for a minute and a half, remove. Can be here-same wash in cold water, to squid immediately cooled down.
Ideally, squids should curl up into a ball the size of a walnut or in a tube, squares out.
In a wok (just easier to mix, and you can in a simple pan), heat the oil and fry the garlic, ginger and fermented beans.
(About beans. Can be of course and without them, but they were in original prescription. Decided to buy and try. They have a very interesting taste. Give it a try. Suddenly like.)
Add soy sauce, Shaoxing wine, a pinch of sugar.
Warm up and add the squid. Simmer for two or three minutes, stirring constantly.
That's all she wrote.
Relax and choose - shrimp or squid.
