Ingredients

1 pound squid
cleaned
2 tablespoons black beans
2 cloves garlic
minced
2 tablespoons rice wine
1 teaspoon ginger
grated
*
2 each scallions, spring or green onions
chopped
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Directions

Many people shy away from dishes with names like Black Bean Sauce Squid because they think it involves the preparation of a complicated sauce.

In fact it is quite easy. The black beans themselves, fermented and salted when you buy them, are the sauce.

All you do is add a little rice wine to make a paste.

Then it's just like any other stir-fry a couple of minutes of high-heat cooking, continuously stirring, and the dish is done.

Prepare black bean sauce mixture by adding to the beans: rice wine, soy sauce and sugar.

Let sit for 15 minutes.

Sauté garlic and ginger in the oil over medium heat in a heavy frying pan or wok until garlic is slightly browned.

Turn up heat. Add squid and scallions.

Stir-fry for 30 seconds. Pour in black bean sauce mixture, and cook for 2 minutes.

Add cornstarch and, when sauce thickens, remove from heat and serve.
