Squid & Dandelions

Pyi-Gyi Nga Kazun Ywet (Squid & Dandelions)

Yield: 4 servings


1 ts Dried red hot chili flakes
1 tb Fresh lemon juice
2 ts Soy sauce
1 ts Brown sugar
2 ts Corn OR peanut oil
1 Clove garlic, chopped fine
1 lb Fresh squids, dressed, cut -into 1/2-inch round slices
1/4 lb Dandelion greens, green -leaves only, halved


Watercress and Swiss chard are good substitutes for dandelion since they all have a slightly bitter but appealing taste.
1. Mix the chili flakes, lemon juice, soy sauce, and sugar together. Let stand for 15 minutes.
2. Heat the oil in a wok or skillet and over moderate heat fry the garlic for 1 minute. Add the squid slices and stir fry for 2 minutes. Add the chili/lemon mixture and continue to fry.
3. Add the dandelion greens and cook for 2 minutes more. Do not overcook since it toughens the squid.
Serve warm with other dishes.
