Stir-fry Squid in Black Beans Sauce

Last weekend when I was food shopping in Elmhurst,Queens,I saw frozen squid on sale for $1.69 per pound! I quickly grab 2 per packed frozen squid and throw in my shopping cart.I like to get this type of squid, coz it's save me cleaning time.As we all know cleaning and cutting squid is really a nuisance and time consuming.I also bought a can of dried black beans paste.I like the smell of fermented black beans ,it's really fragrant for me maybe pungent for some people who not use to it. Black beans paste or sauce have become very popular as an ingredient as well as a main dish in Asia or Chinese cooking.Here is my Stir-Fry Squid in Black Beans Sauce... Ingrendients:

1-2 lbs squid (clean and cut)

5 cloves garlic ( minced)

2 tbsp dried black beans (wash and soak in warm water)

1 tbsp sugar

1 tsp salt

2 red pepper (clean and sliced)
1 bell pepper (wash and cut)

1 large onion ( wash and cut)
2 tbsp oilMethod:

1:Wash dried black beans with warm water and soaked for 10 minutes,sieved set aside.

2:Prepare ,wash and cut all the vegetables,set aside.Wash and cut squid (to make curly design,cut halfway thru your squid on each cut,repeat each cut at opposite direction until the end.Then cut 2 inch on each piece)


Prepared skillet or wok at high heat with oil,add in garlic and black beans,fry until fragrant.

3:Add in clean squid,fry for 3 minutes until it's curl,add in all the cut vegetables ,sugar and salt.Stir-fry for another 2 minutes,adjust the seasoning to your taste before remove from heat.Serve warm with rice. Dried Black Beans ~a reader email me a question what is the different between fermented dried black beans and GOYA brand black beans in can.Hope this photo will help him to identified the different between both beans.Photo speak thousand word,right?


Note:


You can use ready mixed black beans sauce or paste in bottle or can,to save the extra step or procedure to soaked and add in extra seasoning in your main dish.Ready mixed black beans sauce or paste is widely sold in any Asian market.

I also submit my entry to Med Cooking Alaska who host Weekend Herb Blogging for this week and also thanks to Kalyn who are the created of Weekend Herb Blogging.If you're interested to submit your entry,hop over to her blog now!

Yum! We prefer to add a little chili to spice it up a bit. This is so delicious served hot with jasmine rice! :)

I too bought a packet of those cut and clean squid but they very really tough. It like eating rubber. I wonder if the one you bought are the same with mine? By the way, I like cooking with black bean too.

My mouth is watering...No one else in my home likes calamari besides me. I think it's because like another visitor said, it is sometimes difficult to cook and then it comes out rubbery. Yours looks amazing! What an interesting concept and the curly squid (Sponge Bob lookout:) adds such texture. Hmm..maybe I can try to fool them with this dish Thanks for sharing.

Ok, I have squid, garlic, onion, and both colors of peppers.

I also have some dried black beans from Goya and canned black beans. That's not what they mean, correct?

I need to get fermented, Asian-style black beans, right?

icook4fun:
Gert,I bought the white thick squid in frozen form that I show you b4.I think all squid is tough and rubbery.I cut the size in smaller ,so don't really feel rubbery.Maybe you should blanced the squid with hot water first b4 cooking.

christy:

fearless kitchen:

louise:
This type of squid not really suitable for frying calamari.I try b4 and it's don't come out really good.You talking about Sponge Bob!! lol! my daughter favourite word "bubble tank"! maybe you should cook smaller portion just for yourself.U know what this whole plate of squid eaten by me only! My American hubby won't touch this dish at all!Typical American!

taste of home:

LCOM:

Bravo!.To answer your question I post the black bean pix on my post.hope it's help you.No you can't use Goya BB as the paste.I used GOYA black beans to used wt yellow rice,try that,it's good! If you have asian store nearby,get Lee Kum Kee ready mixed BB paste.

Fermented black beans are so good, and this recipe looks perfect. Although I didn't get an email about your post, I included it in Weekend Herb Blogging. Hope that's okay! Thanks for the entry!

I've had dishes with black bean sauce in restaurants, but haven't cooked with it. Can't get squid here, but maybe shrimp would be good.
