Sesame grilled humboldt squid steak
450 grams fresh Humboldt squid steak (should give 4 portions)
1/3 cup (80 milliliters) soy sauce
2 tablespoons (30 milliliters) fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1/4 cup (60 milliliters) mirin
1 tablespoon (15 milliliters) sesame oil
2 tablespoons (30 milliliters) sesame seeds
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon (15 milliliters) canola oil
In a mixing bowl, stir together the soy sauce, ginger, garlic, mirin and sesame oil.
Split mixture into two separate bowls.
Use one half of the liquid to marinate squid steaks for 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally.
Toast sesame seeds in non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat for five to six minutes, or until they start to turn golden brown.
Heat grill pan on stove over medium-high heat.
Remove squid steaks from marinade and grill for four to five minutes per side.
Remove from the heat, slice into one centimeter strips lengthwise and serve hot.
Add toasted sesame seeds to second half of the sauce, and serve alongside the squid steaks.
