Many occupational hazards of adult life will be greatly alleviated by massage:

  • aching back and shoulder after a long office stint
  • exhaustion or overstrained muscles from physical labor or excessive exercise
  • circulatory problems from too little exercise by sedentary workers.
Massage can benefit you right down to the cellular level!

Squid Vicious

Recipe courtesy Alton Brown

 
 
Recipe Summary
Difficulty: Medium
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Yield: 2 entree servings

1/2 pound squid tentacles and tubes
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 cup miso broth (1/2 cup water mixed with 1 tablespoon miso paste)
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon thinly sliced garlic
1/4 teaspoon minced ginger
2 dried arbol chiles
1/3 cup medium dice sweet onion
1/4 cup torn-into-strips oyster mushrooms
1/3 cup medium dice red bell pepper
Freshly ground white pepper

On a clean cutting board, remove the tentacles from the bodies of the squid and reserve. Make sure the tubes are cleaned out and split them open lengthwise so they look like a flat triangle. Using a matte knife, lightly score the squid in a crosshatch pattern. Cut each tube into four pieces of roughly equal size.

In a bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of soy sauce with 1 teaspoon of cornstarch and toss the squid in it to coat. Marinate while preparing for the rest of the dish. Combine the miso broth and balsamic vinegar with the remaining cornstarch.

In a hot pan or wok, add the sesame oil and swirl to coat the pan. Add the squid and cook for 30 to 40 seconds. It will curl up naturally and brown. Working quickly, add the garlic, ginger, and chiles. Allow them to fry for 10 to 15 seconds stirring constantly (they can burn fast). Add the onion, mushrooms, and bell pepper and saute for another minute. Pour in the stock mixture and simmer until the sauce begins to thicken. Season with white pepper and additional soy sauce, if necessary. Serve over rice.
