Lime and Chilli Squid with coconut rice

 |  |  |  |  | 

Method

  • Cut just below the squids eyes to remove tentacles and put aside
  • cut along one side of the squids hood to open and remove insides
  • score diagonally edge to edge on the inside of the squid tubes around 5mm apart (not cutting through the squid) and then repeat the process going the other diagonal to form a “criss cross” pattern, or pineapple cut. (care must be taken to ensure you do this on the inside of the squid or it will not work.)
  • zest limes as finely as possible, put aside and then cut limes in half
  • heat pan till very hot
  • add 1 tbsp. of olive oil to pan
  • add 1/2 tsp chilli flakes (less or more is up to your personal taste) and 1/2 tsp of minced garlic , briefly stir then add 1 third of the prepared squid (too much at once will cool your pan down too much)
  • sauté for 30-40 seconds
  • add 1 tbsp. of kecap manis to pan along with 1 tsp of lime zest and a good squeeze of lime, stir through
  • serve with coconut rice and enjoy!

Coconut rice

  • add rice , water, coconut milk, kaffir lime leaves and a pinch of salt to rice cooker and set to cook
  • once cooked, lightly stir through long thread coconut and let sit for 8-10 minutes on warm

Other RECIPES YOU MAY LIKE

  • Stopped by the Fishermen’s Co-op just before the lunchtime crowd and the snapper was excellent. The crumbing was light and the oil fresh. In fact all the fish there looked great. The calamari was fresh and actually squid rings not mashed together to look like a ring. It got very busy quickly after I arrived and seating outside on the covered deck is limited so get in early or takeaway to the beach close by.

  • This was fish and chips done to perfection. Thick crunchy fish cocktails, calamari rings, prawn cutlets and chips were all fantastic.

  • Service at the Co-Op is friendly and helpful and the fish is MAGNIFICENTLY FRESH. If you have a special occasion coming up, the cooked lobster is absolutely delicious.

  • The fisherman’s co-op is your one stop shop for both a tasty seafood lunch and to purchase fresh seafood for dinner. Highly recommended the fisherman’s basket for two, it was easily enough to fill both our bellies. We then purchased a fresh kilo of prawns to take home.
