We received some dried squids when we visited the nearby shrine for our son's Omiyamairi (the first shrine visit) and my darling's Yakubarai (ceremony to drive away evil spirits). I decided to make a dish out of them.
It turned out to a very tasty and delicious stir-fried dish, goes great with white rice. Oyster-sauce flavor, with a hint of chive is obviously addictive. Very filling with lots of bean sprouts ;)
You don't need a knife but use kitchen scissors / kitchen shears!
Of course, you can use regular squids.
FYI: Hatsumiya-Mairi (初宮参り) or Omiyamairi (お宮参り) is one of the traditional celebration events for Japanese babies. Whenever a newborn is over a month old, we bring the baby to a nearby shrine for a greeting (giving the invocation).
