Cookbook Countdown #12: KK's Southern Chinese-style squid

For this month, you may use those cookbooks which you have shared at Cookbook Countdown, from January 2016 onwards. So, in December : You may select a new chosen cookbook to cook or bake from as usual, OR you may re-visit all the cookbooks that you have used at Cookbook Countdown from January to November 2016. There might be a recipe or two that you've been eyeing to try, from some of those books from the months before. December is the time to share them. Let's browse thru those books again! Or cook from a new book, the choice is yours!
Southern Chinese-style squid
From page 23 of Kylie Kwong's
Heart and Soul
adapted from KK's recipe:
 2 medium size squids, washed and butterflied,
cut into strips, pat dry and coated with cornflour
vegetable oil for frying
coriander stalks and roots - thinly sliced
likewise for spring onions,
diced ginger, diced garlic and diced red chili
salt and chili flakes (instead of Sichuan pepper and salt)
lemon wedge

I'm co-hosting Cookbook Countdown together with Joyce of Kitchen Flavours. If you are like us, who love to collect cookbooks and have an overcrowding bookshelf (or bookshelves!), yet most of the books have not been used at all, now is the time to change that. Join us at Cookbook Countdown
I am cooking from Kylie Kwong's earlier book 'Heart and Soul'
from her TV cooking show days, which I enjoyed.
These are all I have collected, there are two more books that 
are missing from my bookshelves!
and she is also available at FB!
