2How to make fried squid with cucumber
Step 1 Process materials
After purchasing the squid, clean it by washing with diluted salt water and letting it dry. Then, cut it into bite-sized pieces. You can also use pre-cut squid or squid pieces based on your preference.
Wash the cucumber with diluted salt water, drain it, and cut off the top 2 parts of the cucumber. Then, cut the cucumber lengthwise into four parts and further cut it into diagonal pieces.
Wash and cut the green onions and celery into short pieces.
Peel the garlic and mince it.
Step 2 Boiled squid
Add a sufficient amount of water to a pot and bring it to a boil. Then, put a little white wine in the pot.
Note that when preparing the squid, wait for the water to boil before adding the squid. This will make the squid crispier. Boil the squid until it is just cooked and then transfer it to a separate bowl.
Use this white wine to remove the fishy smell of the squid and enhance its taste when cooked.
Step 3 Stir fried squid with cucumber
Heat a pan and add 2 tablespoons of cooking oil. When the oil is hot, add the minced garlic and fry until fragrant.
Next, stir-fry the freshly prepared squid over high heat and then reduce the heat. Add a little water and season with ingredients such as sugar, seasoning, oyster sauce, chili sauce, ground pepper, and sesame oil to taste. Stir well for 1-2 minutes to allow the squid to absorb the seasoning.
Then, add the cucumber and stir-fry until it is just cooked. Finally, add the green onions and sliced celery, mix well, and turn off the heat.
To complete the dish, place the fried squid with cucumber on a plate. Sprinkle some pepper and a few slices of chili for added fragrance and attractiveness. For enhanced taste, you can serve the dish with soy sauce and a few slices of chili.
Preparing this dish won’t take much of your time. In less than 30 minutes, using simple ingredients, you can enjoy delicious fried squid with cucumber rice with your family. Good luck!
