Fresh whole Squids are hard to find where I live, but Frozen Squid Tubes are widely available from many shops, and they are inexpensive. Just thaw them, cut into rings, and stir-fry. Anyone can do that. Here is a super easy recipe for you to try. You only need a frying pan, and no special ingredients. It is a very simple dish, yet very delicious.


2 Servings


2 Squid Tubes *about 300g, thawed
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1 clove Garlic *coarsely chopped
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/2 Lemon *sliced
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
2 servings Salad Lettuce Mix

  1. If you thawed Frozen Squid Tubes in water, drain them very well. Dry them with paper towel if too wet. Cut into rings about 2cm in width.
  2. Arrange Salad Vegetables on a serving plate.
  3. Heat Olive Oil and Garlic in a frying pan over high heat. When aromatic, cook Squids. When colour is changed, it won’t take long, add Lemon slices, Salt and Pepper, and stir-fry until cooked.
  4. Place cooked Squid and Lemon slices on the Salad Vegetables, pour the liquid in the pan over the Squid, sprinkle with extra Black Pepper, and enjoy immediately.
  5. *Note: If you have a lot of liquid, cook the liquid for 30 to 60 seconds to reduce the amount, then pour it over.
