This was a good recipe. I made a couple of changes only because I couldn't find the ingrediants up here. So instead of squid I used scallops, and instead of dried chilies, I used 2 tsps of Sombel Oelek (hot chili paste). I also didn't add the sugar - never do. We seasoned with fresh ground black pepper. I'll be making again but kicking up the heat a bit more. (apologies for the photo - something's wrong with the camera. Will get a better one next time)
