The Philippines is very rich in seafood. If you are in a country surrounded by sea, this is just right. And we, Filipinos, are known to be very experimental with food. We are known for our household food, adobo.
We almost make adobo out of any kind of meat. And, squid is not an exception. Here’s a quick and easy lutong Pinoy recipe of ADOBONG PUSIT!
What You Need
- 1 kg pusit (small squid), cleaned
- 3 tbsp oil
- 2 tbsp minced garlic
- 125 ml vinegar
- 75 ml soy sauce
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 2 bay leaves
- 2 chili peppers
What To Do
- Before starting, make sure that the squid is clean. Detach the heads but keep the ink sacs intact and throw away the stiff membranes.
- In a hot casserole, fry the garlic in oil until brown or toasted. Add the squid.
- Stir-fry for a minute or until the squids starts to become stiff. Break the ink sacs into the casserole.
