1/3 Photos of Ginger Squid Japanese Style (Ika Shoga Yaki)
Chef floWer's Note:
Ika Shoga-yaki is simple but is a very popular dish in Japanese cuisine. Ika means squid, shoga means ginger and yaki means grill or fry. This recipe was given to me by a Japanese friend. I really enjoy squid and this makes a quick dinner or entree. 15 minutes marinating time is included in cooking time. An Australian tablespoon is 20 mls/one Australian tablespoon is 4 US/UK teaspoons)
My Private Note

- 1Combine ginger, soy sauce and mirin in a large bowl.
- 2Add thinly sliced squid into the bowl and mix until all the squid is covered with the sauce. Allow squid to marinade for about 15 minutes.
- 3After 15 minutes, heat wok or skillet (pan) at high heat, then add oil.
- 4Remove squid from bowl (make sure any juices/marinate are left in the bowl). Reserve any marinate. Add squid into the hot pan.
- 5Stir-fry squid quickly in the pan and cook until it changes colour (about 7 minutes). Work quickly as overcooked squid will become rubbery so don't over cook.
- 6Pour marinate into the pan and stir quickly. (Marinated meat burns easily so it's important to work quickly).
- 7Serve with steam rice and green vegetables.
