This grilled stuffed squid or inihaw na pusit recipe is simple and straightforward. The result was a tasty and tender grilled squid. The stuffing made the dish more appetizing. I think that the dipping sauce also made a huge difference in making the dish stand out.
If you plan to make this dish, be ready to cook extra servings of rice (unless you are in a weight loss diet). I found the temptation for having extra servings of rice hard to resist. It was probably just me, you might have a better control of yourself than I do.
By the way, I had this with Filipino eggplant salad. The combination was perfect. What do you eat grilled squid with?
