Thai grilled squid with green sauce
  • For Squid
  • 1 kg squid- cut into long strips
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp minced ginger
  • Bamboo skewers soaked in water
  • For Sauce
  • 3-4 fresh green chili- pound into rough paste or finely minced
  • 6 cloves garlic- finely minced
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup vinegar
