What You Need

Ingredients :

1 1/2 lbs squid, cleaned

2 - 3 tbsp cooking oil


1/4 cup dried ear mushroom

1/2 lb ground pork

1 bundle cellophane noodles (about 2 oz)

1 small onion, chopped

1/2 tbsp fish sauce

1/2 tsp minced ginger

1/4 tsp sugar

1/8 tsp black pepper

  • Soak the cellophane noodles in hot water about 10 minutes or until its pliable. Then drain and cut into 1-inch length.
  • Soak the dried ear mushroom in warm water about 10 minutes. Then drain and slice thinly.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine ground pork, noodles, mushrooms, onion, ginger, sugar and fish sauce. Use spatula or spoon to mix well.
  • Stuff the squid with pork mixture. Hold the squid with one hand and use the other hand to stuff. Add a small amount of pork mixture at a time and gently push it with your finger to the end of squid. Do not overstuff because we do not want it burst during cooking or even get half cooked filling. Insert the a toothpick to close the squid.
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. When hot, add cooking oil. Put the squid into the skillet. Sear the squid until its golden on both sides. Turning 1 or 2 times as needed. Continue to cook on low heat until the squid firm and brown. Do not overcook or it will be rubbery. Cooking time may vary depending on how big is your squid. Transfer to serving dish and let it cool.
  • Before serving, remove the toothpick from the squid. Cut the squid into slices. Serve them hot or at room temperature with dipping sauce.
