Pan-fried Squid Patties

Another of my hometown dish that I love to make! It's pan-fried squid patties! It's very easy to make and it's super addictive to eat as a snack!

+ Fresh squids, onions, corn starch, seasoning powder.

+ Wash squids, pull out the tentacles, discard the innards, ink, eyes and mouth. Peel the skin membrane, remove the quill (it's inside the body, resembles a shard of plastic). Thoroughly wash the inside of the squid body tube, using your finger to pull out any residual innards. Pat dry then cut the whole squid into ring pieces.

 Note: The skin membrane (the outer skin of the squid) is edible, you don't have to worry about peeling it off, but I just like to do so, as a habit.

+ Prepare blender, blend squid rings, head and tentacles, together with chopped onion.

+ After done blending, pour the paste into a bowl, mix together with corn starch and seasoning.


+ Heat oil in a frying pan, when the oil is hot enough, lower the temperature and fry the squid paste. Oil the spoon to make the patties, so that the paste won't stick to the spoon. Cook both side until golden! Done and enjoy!

 Note: If you like herbs, you should add dills to the squid paste!

I have to say you're pretty brave doing that from scratch...Most people here in the UK are afraid to deal with innards so we buy things ready prepared >< Pathetic right?!

This recipe looks great though! I'll definitely try it sometime~

Thanks for sharing! ♫
