Fried squid with garlic and peppercorns

I seldom have squid as a dish because my home town is far from the sea. However this is fried seafood recipe, an easy spicy meal that is excellent to be eating with rice. In this recipe you can see that we use sugar. Most of the time adding sugar during the cooking is not purposed for the sweet flavor of sugar but to smooth the flavor of the food.
