OH MY this is good. The recipe is well written, directions are clear and easy to follow. This dish tastes GREAT. We love it. The adults all love the sauce and the kids love the squid. I could do this sauce with shrimp, scallops or chicken. I think a little pepper flakes would add to this dish. Easy, fast, simple, healthy and DELICIOUS. Thank you.

Very good! I got a package of frozen calamari "steaks" from my local Asian market, and cut them into fairly thin strips. I made the marinade as stated (sooooo good!) but cut the cooking oil by two thirds. I also cut the cooking time, as I've had the rule drilled into me that squid should be cooked either for 2 minutes or 2 hours, never between. I went with 2 minutes, and that's really all it needed. It was cooked through, tender, and really strongly flavored (in a good way) with the ginger. I'd be happy to make this again, either with squid steaks or frozen squid rings. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I sliced the squid into 3/4" strips, marinated for a couple hours, then threaded the strips onto soaked wooden skewers and grilled them quickly over high heat. Everyone loved them. Very flavorful and tender.

This was so simple but yet so great! Everything seemed to work together just perfectly and I couldn't believe how such a simple recipe left the squid so flavourful and tender.

Delicious! We really enjoyed this dish - it is fast, easy and tasty. DS has asked that I make this again, often. I made it according to the recipe, but will probably try the pepper flakes mentioned by another reviewer sometime too.

These were scrumptious, Really quick and easy to make. I just served them with some salad. I was great meal. I did add some pepper flakes for a little kick, just personal taste. I will be making this often. Thank you
