Ingredients

Also known as ‘adobong pusit’ in Tagalog, this Filipino squid dish is braised for a tender texture!

Let's start cooking!

Marinated squid with soy, oyster sauce and black pepper

Step 1 - Marinate squid

  • In a large mixing bowl, add squid, 130 ml soy sauce, 40 ml oyster sauce, and 1 Tbsp black pepper. Mix well, and set aside for 20 minutes to marinate.
  • Drain squid, reserving the marinade and keeping aside.
    Use small to medium sized squids as they are more flavorful compared to the large ones.
