Cuttlefish (Sotong) Snack

We bought several different varieties of cuttlefish aka sotong snacks in Hatyai, and somehow I have forgotten about the snacks and it was left lying on the rack for quite sometime. Since I was shifting things these few days, I noticed the poor "forgotten" sotong lying & crying sadly on the rack :) Food are mean to be eaten... If we don't eat them, they will feel humiliated :P

Seasoned, spicy baked Cuttlefish

Roasted Cuttlefish slices.

Sweet & Spicy Cuttlefish

Dried Seasoned Cuttlefish snacks

p/s: Yesterday night, I have an interesting lengthy crappy Sotong Chat with Carcar. We come up with a conclusion suggestion to have a Sotong Club but the T & C to join the club is.. to bring one sotong. If live sotong not available, sotong snacks will do as well (This one is just TCSS only lah).. Any sotong interested to join in the club? We are trying to recruite more sotong members.. if u r one of the sotong, then u can join in the club. We strongly believe that Great Mind Sotong Mind Thinks Alike (curi carcar's phrase). Brilliant Sotong thinking leh. Who dare to say that Sotong is Blurred? :P Btw, more Sotong posts on the way...

Wise Sotong Quote of the Day : ** If u can't beat them, join them (Not the other way round --> If u can't join them, beat them):P

Simple American said...

To sotong or to lui? That is the question.

izso said...

A^Ben.. O_o"

Chen, I like squid / sotong fried with garlic, chilli, soy sauce and corn flour to make it starchy. The other forms of sotong so-so only.

Btw, I have my own quote : "If you can't beat them.. destroy all evidence you tried"

Chen said...

lb,
So sotong pie is a pie filled with fried calamari rings :)

ben,
u r indeed a great musician :) All the best to u in your Spanish Dance today. Don't shake too much ka chng, okie?

izso,
Your way of cooking the sotong is delish too :) Your quote regarding"If you can't beat them.. destroy all evidence you tried" is very unique ;). I remember seeing the similar quote in your blog :)

Yeah, carcar, don't shake your ka chng, shake the sotong "legs" (can't think of the correct word right now, paiseh) can already... muahahahha!

I don't buy fresh sotong to prepare myself... I buy ready-fried one. So, unless after cooking the ink is still there, I won't kena stain. Hahaha! :P

Daniel Yiek said...

I have stopped eating dried seafood or salted fish because I read that there are virus in such things that can cause havoc to your health in the long term. Some virus can affect the make up of the body cells....
