Ginataang Pusit, Squid in Coconut Milk

Ginataang Pusit
Ginataang Pusit. I have been yearning to cook this dish for sometime now. I do have several squid dish now on the archives. This addition is my version of ginataang pusit I have been cooking like this ever since. There is not much recipe for ginataang pusit in the net. I have made several searches before, hoping to find how the Bicolanos cook their ginataang pusit. The dish is common in Bicol they also add some vegetables in the dish. I wanted the dish as cream white as possible to have a better visual appeal so I have discarded the ink sack and the eyes which gives a dark tint. I know the real flavors of a good squid dish are from the ink so should you wish to have the inks you could always add them. Enjoy.
