Salt and Pepper Grilled Squid

Salt and Pepper Grilled Squid
Salt and Pepper Grilled Squid. This my favorite inihaw na pusit version, the squid should be fresh, just seasoned with salt and cracked peppercorns and some kalamansi juice, let stand to marinate for at least 15 minutes before grilling. It is best grilled in hot charcoals but for this recipe I just used my electric grill. For better result I baste the squid with butter in between to add some flavors and to seal in the juices of the squid and avoid being dried up. This is how I normally asked how our order of grilled squid done whenever we dine out on Paluto sa Dampa atmosphere restaurant. Here is the recipe of my Salt and Pepper Grilled Squid.

Grilled Squid

Grilled Pusit


1 kilo large squid, about 3 to 4 pieces
1/4 cup melted salted butter
juice from 3-4 pieces kalamansi
1 tbsp. cracked peppercorns
1 tbsp. salt
chopped spring onion for garnish

Cooking procedure:

Inihaw na Pusit

To clean squid, pull out the head and the innards will come out with it. Discard entrails. Remove the teeth and keep aside head and tentacles. Remove the membrane from the body. Wash out remaining entrails under running water and drain. Dash the squid with salt, cracked peppercorns and the kalamansi juice for 15 minutes to 1 hour before grilling. Grill squid in an electric griller set at max heat for 8 to 10 minutes on each side. Baste squid with butter between. When done slice each squid crosswise, garnish with chopped spring onion and serve with your favourite dipping mixture.
