Stir-Fried Squid with Celery Recipe

Chinese celery is crunchy and aromatic with a lightness and natural sweetness to it. Combined with lightly cooked squid, this dish is a favourite with many Taiwanese.

Ingredients :

  • 130 g (42/3 oz) Chinese celery
  • 450 g (1 lb) squid
  • Water, as needed
  • 1 Tbsp cooking oil
  • 15 g (1/2 oz) ginger, peeled and cut into fine strips
  • 15 g (1/2 oz) garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 15 g (1/2 oz) red chilli, cut into strips

Seasoning

  • 1/tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp rice wine

Method :

  1. Rinse the Chinese celery. Pluck and discard the leaves. Slice the celery stalks into 5-cm (2-in) lengths. Set aside.
  2. Clean, score and cut the squid.
  3. Boil some water in a saucepan and blanch the squid briefly. Remove and plunge immediately into iced water to cool. When the squid is cool, drain well.
  4. Heat the oil in a wok over high heat. Add the ginger, garlic and chilli and stir-fry for 20 seconds.
  5. Add the celery and stir-fry for 2 minutes.
  6. Add the squid and seasoning. Cook for another 3–4 minutes.
  7. Dish out and serve immediately.

Note: You can use Western celery in place of Chinese celery, but the dish will not be as fragrant.
