DIRECTIONS

  • Dry the squid well. Cut vertically through the group of tentacles if it is large, otherwise leave whole.
  • Cut the squid body into rectangles, diamonds, or squares with no pieces being larger than 1 inch.
  • If the basil leaves are large, chop to about the same size pieces as the squid.
  • Mix the squid and basil together.
  • Heat wok or large skillet over high heat.
  • Lower the heat to medium, then add the peanut oil.
  • Swirl the oil and add the garlic. Stir once and return the heat to high before adding the squid-basil mixture.
  • Stir and add the red pepper. Stir frequently until the squid becomes opaque, less than one minute.
  • Begin tasting the squid and keep tasting until tender, about 1-3 minutes more. Add salt to taste.
  • Serve over rice.
