2 oz sliced shallot
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp black bean garlic sauce
2 Tbsp mirin (Japanese rice wine)
1/4 tsp sugar
1) Heat oil in a wok or large pan over medium high heat.
2) Once the pan is hot add ginger, shallot, and garlic. Sauté for 2 minutes.
3) Stir in squid, black bean garlic sauce, mirin and sugar. Sauté for about 5 minutes.
