Pusit Relleno - Stuffed Calamari



Trans-fat Free


12 large squid
½ pound ground pork
3 each scallions, spring or green onions
finely sliced
1 each eggs
1 x salt and black pepper
to taste
1 clove garlic
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium onions
1 medium tomatoes
½ each bay leaves
1 tablespoon soy sauce, tamari


Remove squid heads and ink sacs, clean the calamari outside and inside.

Sprinkle salt lightly on squids and set aside.

In a large bowl combine ground pork, green onions, beaten egg and a little salt and pepper.

Stuff squid cavities with meat mixture.

This is messy and slippery, don't over stuff the calamari as the stuffing will swell when cooking.

A pastry bag makes this easier to do.

Place a pan in a steamer and steam the calamari covered for 10 to 15 minutes, or until filling is cooked.

Drain liquid and set aside.

Prepare sauce while steaming calamari.

In a skillet over medium heat, sauté garlic in oil until lightly browned.

Add onion and stir for 1 minute.

Add tomato, bay leaf and soy sauce and cook for 3 to 5 minutes until tomato pieces are soft.

Pour sauce on top of stuffed calamari.

Serve with rice.

Note: save the tentacles from the calamari and as a side dish stir fry them with some shrimp and vegetables.

use the broth from steaming the calamari as a liquid in this dish.

This is NOT a good dish to serve to people who don't like calamari or are a bit squeamish.

Regular bananas can be used but they should be very firm and green.
