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

  • Heaps of choice of fresh fish to cook at home. We got the $35 family basket – nice variety, plenty to eat, fast service, great taste. A good way to end a day out in the town before heading home again.

  • 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.

  • Best fish & chips we ever had. The Dinner Pack was just huge for two, but you just can’t stop eating! Lovely and crisp chips, and the fish was exceptional. Only draw-back was the very small decking outside, which was too crowded and hard to find a vacant table. Unless of course you take your fish & chips and eat them somewhere else. Everything was as fresh as seafood should be. Straight off the boat! Next time we’ll try the mixed seafood.

  • 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.
