I cook the squid in garlic, soy sauce, chile oil, and butter. It's a simple but delicious combination.




  • Mix soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and chile oil together in a bowl until soy-ginger sauce is smooth.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet or wok over medium heat; add squid. Cook and stir squid, adding soy-ginger sauce, until sauce is reduced and thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and stir in butter until well integrated.

  • Squeeze lemon halves over squid to serve.

I really liked this but I feel there is room for improvement in the preparation method. The squid releases so much water during cooking that the rest of the ingredients get watered down and lost. My recommendation is to cook the squid by itself drain and then toss the sauce and butter over it so that you get exactly that..a sauce.
