Lf you want to retain the ink sac, look among the intestines for a very small, pearly white pouch with a slight blue tinge and carefully cut it away.

Insert the blade of a sharp, thin-bladed, flexible knife into the opening of the body pouch and slit it open along one side. Open it out flat and pull away any remaining intestines and membrane.

9

Score what was the inner side in a diamond pattern using the tip of a small, snarp knife, taking care not to cut too deeply. Then cut the squid into 2-inch (5-cm) pieces.

10

Heat a small, heavy-based frying pan over a high heat. Add the black peppercorns and Sichuan peppercorns and toast them for a few seconds, shaking the pan now and then, until they darken slightly and become aromatic. Tip into a mortar and crush coarsely with the pestle, then stir in the sea salt flakes.

11

Heat a wok over a high heat until smoking. Add half the oil and half the squid and stir-fry it for 2 minutes, until lightly colored. Tip onto a plate, then cook the remaining squid in the same way.

12

Return the first batch of squid to the wok and add 1 teaspoon of the salt-and-pepper mixture (the rest can be used in other stir-fries). Toss together for about 10 seconds, then add the red chile and green onions and toss together very briefly.

13

Divide the squid among four serving plates. Toss the salad with the dressing and pile alongside the squid. Serve immediately.

The flatfish are an order (Pleuronectiformes) of ray-finned fish, also called the Heterosomata, sometimes classified as a suborder of Perciformes. A great way to prepare any whole flatfish that will fit in your skillet. The best way to eat it is to simply pick at the fish with a pair of chopsticks or your fingers.

You can prepare the onions for this salad a few hours before you need them — or even the day before — to improve the flavor. It is important that they be quite soft.) not crunchy.
