Stir-fry Squid and Clam with Sambal Paste

Another entry of my favorite spicy dish!! Who don't like seafood or spicy food? I guess we Asian especially the one who come from South East Asia have strong hot,sour and spicy taste bud.No matter what day,hot or humid,rain or shine we still eat hot,sour and spicy food daily without fail,right? Westerner or American don't understand how can we consume hot and spicy food under humid and hot weather during summer? One of the westerner I'm talking about is my dear hubby!! He can't comprehend that I can eat spicy food for lunch and dinner..Told me I'm a good camper if I can eat this kind of food everything for the rest of my life..OK... back to this dish..I have some left over squid from making seafood casserole..Since the squid was clean and cut and sit in fridge for days, I might as well cook something tasteful for myself instead of letting it's goes bad..Here comes my spicy squid and clam!! delicious and super scrumptious!!

1 cup squid,about 300-400 gm,clean and cut diamond shape or any shape you prefer
1 lb clam,any type,wash thoroughly with cold water and salt
2 red long pepper,washed and cut
1 stalk scallion,washed and cut 2 inch
1 large onion,peeled and sliced
3 tbsp sambal tumis
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp tamarind concentrate juice
salt to taste
2 tbsp oil
1:Heat skillet or pan with oil and sambal tumis at medium heat.Add in squid and clam,toss and mix all the ingredients well for 2-3 minutes before add in seasoning and vegetables.
2:Add 3-4 tbsp water if necessary but the squid itself release some liquid.Stir for another 1-2 minutes at high heat.Check the seasoning before dish out and serve warm with rice.

I think spicy and seafood go really well together. This dish looks really good. I wish that they sold squid out here, I would be making it for dinner tonight.
