Stir Fry Butter Squids with Ginger and Garlic .... and not one but 2 Awards

I seldom post about my cooking, not because I don't cook often, but its because everyone seems hungry and can't wait to sink their spoons and fork into the dish before I can even lift up my DSLR.. LOL.. Since I reach home early yesterday , I actually have some extra time to prepare dinner earlier and take a few shots of the dish.
This is actually a very simple yet tasty dish . It took me less than 20 minutes to get it ready to be serve on the dining table . Simply irresistible dish . Try it yourself and you'll know what I mean . I remember getting this recipe from one of my very old recipe book , but I can't quite remember which book .I am so used to preparing this dish , I can't quite remember the exact amount of sauces and ingredients needed .
