Directions

  1. Marinate the squid

    • Marinate the squid with salt and lime juice. Let it sit in the chiller for 15 minutes.


  2. Cook the spices

    • Coarsely chop red chili peppers, curly red chilies, shallots and garlic.

    • In the saucepan, heat up some oil and sauté the spices over medium heat. Once they turn fragrant with oils released, add in salt and sugar. Stir well.

    This squid chili sauce can last up to 1 week so you can store it in a glass bottle and close it tightly and then store it in the refrigerator.
