Post & Recipe in English and Chinese (中英食谱)
“Love this, if you like it; Like this, if you hate it. 喜欢的会爱上它;讨厌的会喜欢它.”

My way of surf & turf, meat in squid. Cooking the relatively bland squid dish with a good recipe is essential. I have mine which I think goes really well with just a plate of steamy hot rice! Even for someone who doesn’t like squid, you wouldn’t be resisting it!

有别于一般传统的水陆佳肴,这是我的呈现方式,猪肉酿鱿鱼。最主要的,是在于如何把最单调乏味的鱿鱼配上美味的食谱。我的烹调方法就自认为最配饭的!即使是不喜欢吃鱿鱼的你也会吃上好几口的!

1 teaspoon of corn starch
Dash of sesame oil
Pinch of salt

Seasoning (B):

2-3份
材料
主料:
大的新鮮魷魚
100克 豬肉碎

佐料(A):
1湯匙 醬青
1 湯匙 泰國魚露
1茶匙 白胡椒粉
1茶匙 玉米粉
麻油 適量
鹽 少许

佐料(B):
鹽和粗黑胡椒 適量

佐料(C):
1湯匙 叁巴辣椒醬
2湯匙 XO醬
2汤匙 水
糖 少许

2汤匙 食油

装饰:
芫荽

Method:
(1) Clean the squid by removing the internal organs and inc sac by pulling the head. Wash the inner thoroughly under running water.

(2) Remove also the transparent plastic-like soft bone from the inner. Tear away the thin dark purplish layer of membrane on the outside of the squid. The whole squid should be white now. Retain the squid head, but cut away the beak and eye balls on the head. Wash the squid again and pat dry. Set aside.

(3) Marinate minced meat with seasoning ingredients (A). Stuff as much seasoned meat as possible into the tube of the squid. Leave about 1cm gap at the opening, insert the head and secure with a toothpick.

(4) Place stuffed squid on a plate, sprinkle seasoning (B) on the squid. Cover with cling wrap and leave in the refrigerator to marinate for at least an hour.

(5) Heat pan with 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-low fire. Sauté squid on both sides till trace of burnt appears. Remove grilled squid from pan. Set aside.

(6) In the same pan, add more oil, followed by XO sauce and sambal paste, stir fry till aroma releases. Drizzle water around the edges to create sizzling effect. Add sugar, return squid, and cook together to mix well. Dish up, slice crosswise, garnish and serve with rice.

做法:
(1) 把鮮魷魚头拔出,除內臟,冲洗干净。

(2)把身体里头的一支长装透明软骨也要拔出来。剥掉身体外面的薄黑衣,整条鱿鱼应呈现白色外观。然后摘掉鱿鱼的嘴和两个眼珠。再清洗一次,沥干备用。

(3)把佐料(A)和肉末搅拌均匀。將調好的肉餡塞入魷魚內。塞满肉末最后部分留1公分左右,把鱿鱼头放入,用牙签扎起来固定好。

(4)把酿鱿鱼放盘,用佐料(B)进行调味后,用透明胶片包好,放进冰箱,腌制最少一个小时。

(5)中小火,下1汤匙油热锅,放入酿鱿鱼,把两面煎香并呈少许焦黄。起锅备用。

(6)加油热锅,加入叁巴和XO酱,炒香。从锅边浇水以呈现蒸发效果。加入糖,再把鱿鱼放回锅里,配合在一起翻炒。起锅,裝盤切片,装饰,配饭上桌。

A serving of my XO stuffed squid counts about 200kcal.

Tips: Stove fire should be low when sauté/ grill stuffed squid to make sure the meat inside is completely cooked before the squid is overly cooked or burnt. Alternatively, slit the knife through in the middle of the squid so that the heat penetrates and cooks the meat inside easily.
* Instead of one large squid, use of 2 smaller squids is equally fine.
* The bottled sambal paste and XO paste used in my recipe are from The Soup Restaurant. You may use any brand of the shelves, too.

小提示:煎/烤鱿鱼一定要小火,以避免酿在里头的肉熟透以前鱿鱼被烤焦。要不然,可以在鱿鱼背上划开几刀好让热力渗透把肉煮熟。
* 除了用大条的鱿鱼,分成两条较小的也行。
* 食谱里用的瓶装叁巴和XO酱是从三件两盅餐馆购买。你也可以用市场上任何牌子。
