Slice calamari hoods into rings. Combine soy sauce, sake, grated ginger, chilli sauce and chilli in a mixing bowl then add calamari. Marinade for 30 minutes (or longer) in refrigerator.

When ready to cook, drain the calamari, reserving the marinade. Heat canola and sesame oil in a wok or frying pan. Add the drained calamari (it is best to cook in 2 batches) and stir-fry over a high heat for 3 to 4 minutes until just cooked and tender (overcooking will toughen the calamari). Put cooked calamari onto a warm plate. Pour marinade into the wok then add the mirin and reduce over a high heat for 2 or 3 minutes or until slightly thickened. Add sliced shallots, pickled ginger and cooked calamari. Heat through briefly and serve hot on a bed of crisp cos lettuce. Accompany with lemon wedges. Slivered and sauteed red capsicum is also delicious with this dish.
