This is a good way to highlight squid while moving away from the breaded and fried calamari style. The peas and vegetables add a sweetness and help complement the squid flavor while the sauce adds richness and body to the dish.

I've found that it is much easier to cook tender sous vide squid than when it is traditionally prepared. The sous vide really tenderizing it first and you just warm it with the further cooking.

Sous Vide Squid with Sugar Snap Peas Instructions

Pre-Bath

Preheat the water bath to 138°F / 58.8°C.

Rinse the squid under cold running water and cut into rings or thin strips. Season the squid with salt and pepper and seal in the sous vide pouch. Add to the water bath and cook for 2 to 4 hours, until it becomes tender.

Finishing the Sous Vide Squid with Sugar Snap Peas

About 10 minutes before the squid is done start making the peas.

In a pan over medium heat add the oil and warm. Add the onion and cook until it turns translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the peas, peppers, ginger, and garlic then cook for 3 more minutes. Add the soy sauce, oyster sauce, vinegar, and stock then simmer for 2 minutes.

In a separate bowl whisk the cornstarch and cold water together. Add this to the pan with the peas and sauce while stirring quickly. Bring to a boil. Remove the squid from the sous vide pouches and pat dry and add to the pan. Stir well and remove from the heat.

Serve the squid in a deep plate or bowl with white or basmati rice.
