Pan fried squid in butter soy sauce

4 pieces of frozen squid

1 red, 1 green and 1 yellow pepper

80 g snap peas

3 tbsp. vegetable oil

Salt and freshly ground pepper

6 tbsp. sake or white wine

4 tbsp. Kikkoman naturally brewed Tamari gluten-free soy sauce

40 g unsalted butter

Preparation time: 30 mins 

Thaw the squid and drain well. Cut the legs into approx. 4-5 cm long pieces. Wash and trim the peppers and mangetout and cut them into fine strips.
Heat up the oil in a frying pan, put the vegetables in, sauté them, season lightly with salt and pepper and keep warm. Fry the body for approx. 1 minute with the lid on. Turn the squid over, add the other pieces of squid and continue cooking for another 5 minutes with the lid on. Remove the pan from the heat and leave the squid to marinate for a while.
Add the sake, soy sauce and butter and glaze the squid with the sauce. Cut the top part of the squid into rings and arrange on a platter with the other pieces. Add the fried vegetables, pour the rest of the sauce over the squid and serve with toasted baguette slices.
