I had this back in 2011 in Manila at my sister in law’s house. Tasted so refreshing and light. I made my first one a year a go but the squid was rubbery, I could make loop bracelet out of it. That was when I was very new to cooking.
I tried to make my own version of it. I did not put any salt because Derrick has pre-hypertension.
Big squid tube (I bought it frozen and already clean)
Fresh Thai basil leaves
No salt seasoning
Cut everything into cube size and put in a bowl
Lightly stir fry the onion with olive oil until soft
Mixed everything in a bowl and season it and add the lime juice
Stuffed everything in the squid
Put bamboo skewer to “lock” the tube
Bake in 450F for 15 minutes
Drizzle with lemon juice before served
I still have four tubes left, maybe next time I will grill it and add some Balinese sambal matah to it.
