Salt and pepper squids and fried noodles with edamame beans

The weather is getting better. The temperature is getting higher and the air is getting dryer. The winter is gone, almond trees bloom, grass is greener the ever before. Spring is in the air. Super exited and full of energy I went to the fish shop, made my shopping and for the first time in my life I forgot my very own freaking pin code, which have never been changed, thereby blocking my credit card. Thankfully I had some money to pay. Days like these lead to … my very superb Salt and pepper squids and outstanding fried noodles with edamame beans.  

Salt and pepper squids:


  • 600 g skinless squid
  • 1 tsp of black peppercorns
  • 1/2 tsp of sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp of dried chilli flakes 
  • 2 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • 1 small deseeded chilli
  • 1 spring of spring onion
  • lemon wedges

  1. Clean all squid well and cut on side to flat it. Put the shiny side down and score the inside surface of the body in diamond pattern. Try not to cut through.
  2. Cut the squid into rectangles about 2 cm x 3 cm and put all together in a bowl.
  3. In the mortar crush paperers, sea salt and chilli flakes together.
  4. Drizzle squid with veg oil and add all spices. Toss together and set aside. 
  5. Heat up dry, non stick pan to the high temperature. Move squid into the pan a fry for about 3 min. 
  6. Serve on a plate sprinkled with fresh chilies and spring onion sliced on the diagonal.
  7. Garnish with lemon wedges.
