  Squid 1 Pound (500 Gram)
  Dried shrimps 2 Tablespoon
  Oyster sauce/Soy sauce 2 Tablespoon
  Dry sherry 1 Tablespoon
  Tomato ketchup 1 Tablespoon
  Cornflour 1 Teaspoon
  Groundnut oil 2 Tablespoon
  Spring onions 6
  Green pepper 1 , cored, seeded and diced

1. To prepare the squid, pull off the head and remove the transparent 'quill' and innards. Peel off the skin. Cut the squid body into thin rings. Cut the tentacles from the head just below the eyes. Set aside the rings and tentacles and discard the rest.
2. Soak the shrimps in warm water for 15 minutes. Drain, reserving 2 tablespoons of the water.
3. Mix together the oyster or soy sauce, sherry, ketchup, reserved soaking water and cornflour. Set aside.
4. Heat the oil in a wok, add the spring onions, pepper and garlic and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the squid and shrimps and stir-fry for about 3 minutes, until just cooked.
5. Pour in the sauce, mix well and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a warmed serving dish and serve immediately, garnished with spring onion brushes.
