Chop the garlic shoots into 5 ~ 6 cm, and parboil. Cut the squid into bite-size pieces. Cut the Japanese leek diagonally into thin slices.
Sprinkle the squid with a small amount of sake and salt, then coat with katakuriko.
Heat sesame oil in a pan, and stir-fry the squid. When the colour starts to change, add garlic shoots, Japanese leek, chicken stock granules, and continue stir-frying. Season with salt and pepper (not listed).
Squeeze a circle of mayonnaise on top, mix together, and serve!
Story Behind this Recipe
I used to stir-fry garlic shoots with pork, but I wanted to change it up a bit. I substituted pork with squid, and it was delicious. This is how I arrived at this recipe.
Buy garlic shoots when on sale, parboil and freeze. You can take them straight from the freezer and toss into stir-fries. They will come in handy. Add mayonnaise if you like. Adding mayonnaise makes the dish richer I think...
