We were fortunate to spy on a bunch of fresh squids in our village market. It was decided we will prepare squid adobo. My version is to soften the squid meat in soy sauce with mashed garlic. while the meat is soften, I prepare a sauce that will give it its flavor – soy sauce, brown sugar, black pepper, cornstarch. I prepare cornstarch over plain flour to give it its sticky and gooey sauce.
We use slices of bell pepper and leeks to garnish the dish. Undoubtedly, it was a hit for our visitors that day!
