Squid with Ginger Garlic Sauce (Muoc Tuoi)-Vietnam

Last night I discovered I had all the ingredients on hand for this dish from Vietnam. Once again it's from Hot Sour Salty Sweet.

The recipe goes into detail on how to clean a squid but I bought a bag of frozen squid tubes for another recipe some time ago so I just cut one into rings.

This was easy to put together. The sauce would also be good with an Asian salad or as a dip for summer rolls.

I plated it like a salad and served it with a side of rice.
