Method

Step 1

Lay each calamari tube flat in a chopping board. Slide a knife into the tube and slice down one side. Open the tube so it sits flat, with the inside side facing up. Carefully score diagonal slits into the flesh that are about 3mm apart and then repeat on a perpendicular angle so you create a lattice effect. Then cut the calamari into approximately 4 x 4cm squares. Set aside.

Step 2

Heat a film of oil in a frying pan on high heat. Sauté garlic and ginger until they begin to go golden. Stir constantly so they do not burn. Add chilli and calamari (scored side down) to the pan and stir fry until the calamari pieces begin to curl up. Add cucumber, mushrooms, black beans, soy, rice wine, oyster sauce, sesame oil and sugar and toss for 20 to 30 seconds or until cucumber is tender. Add spring onions and toss very briefly, to mix.

Step 3

Serve immediately.
