Rellenong Pusit literally translates to Stuffed Squid: “relleno” is the Spanish word for stuffed. This recipe calls for large squids to be stuffed with cooked ground pork.It has been part of our culinary culture to create dishes with stuffings. Some of the famous stuffed dishes that I personally adore are Rellenong Bangus, Chicken Galantina, and […]
Adobong Pusit is a tasty squid dish cooked using the popular Filipino adobo method. Squid is first boiled in soy sauce and vinegar then later sautéed in garlic, onions and tomatoes; this brings in an awesome array of flavors that will surely activate your taste buds.
Technically, any squid will do for this recipe. However, small to medium sized squids are highly recommended because they are more flavorful compared to the large ones. It is hard to find fresh medium squids here in Illinois: this was the reason why I waited until I got to the Philippines to shoot this Adobong Pusit video. It was quite a short vacation but I made sure to make the most out of the short time that I got.
I like this dish because of its rich flavor – it also brings-in a sense of nostalgia which reminds me of the good times that I had when I was still home.
Since this is a squid dish, make sure that you don’t cook the squid longer than the indicated time to preserve the tender texture. If in case the texture of the squid becomes rubbery due to over cooking, try cooking it some more. You see – there are two ways to ensure that the squid that you are cooking is tender: you can either cook it for a short time or add more cooking time as you usually do for pork.

Finally, Summer has arrived. I decided to welcome Summer by preparing something that reminds me of what I usually do during this wonderful season; grill. There are several Summer foods that I want to feature and the first that crossed my mind is Inihaw na Pusit or “Grilled Squid” . This dish is very easy to prepare and does not take much of your time to complete.
When I was still in the Philippines, grilling has become a weekly habit. I make sure that I get the best meat or seafood in the market to grill. I also remember some fast food spots in the food court of malls selling this dish (though freshness is questionable sometimes). And yes…how could dampa in Paranaque and even the one in Sea Side in Macapagal slip my mind. They serve the best Inihaw na Pusit in their respective cities. Haven’t tried the Sugba na pusit (I’m not sure if it is called this way, maybe you can help me out :)) in Cebu and some parts of Mindanao yet but a lot of people who have tried gave it two thumbs up. Are you familiar with the “SuToKil” (Sugba, Towa, Kilaw) ? They say that its a must-try when going to Cebu and Mindanao.
How about you guys? What’s kind of meat or seafood do you love to grill?
Lets grill some Squid !
Adobo is a type of filipino dish cooked usually in soy sauce and vinegar with the addition of garlic, peppercorn and dried bay leaves. Meats such as chicken, pork, beef, and goat meat are commonly used. There are also adobo dishes that involve fish and seafood, vegetables, and rice. We have compiled some of our best adobo […]
This version of Dried Squid in Coconut Milk Recipe (which is also known as “ginataang pusit”) was discovered by accident. I like to eat squid. However, I prefer fresh over dried or dehydrated squid because it is tender, when cooked properly. As far as dried squid goes, all I knew is that small dried squids can be […]
Relyenong Tahong or Stuffed Mussels make a great appetizer. This can also be enjoyed as a main dish with rice and ketchup. The Philippines has a bountiful supply of mussels (and oysters too). These come-in with a lower price compared to other seafood, which makes this an ideal choice for many Filipinos. Aside from large […]
Calamari is probably one of the easiest and quickest appetizers to prepare. Every time we order calamari in restaurants, I am always surprised on how fast the servers get back to us with the order already with them — still hot and crunchy on the outside, while very soft in the inside. That is how […]
Grilled Calamari are marinated squid which are skewered and grilled to perfection. This is a good recipe to try that involves the grill. I know that nothing beats your favorite adobong pusit. I am a fan of that dish too, but let’s give this new comer a warm welcome. I got the idea of skewering […]
It is summer time again (here in North America). Time to clean the grill and get it running again. Steak, hot dogs, burger and bratwurst are some of the favorite foods to grill in this part of the world. However, we are not limited to these selections.
I chose to follow my cravings by grilling barbecue. I miss the grilled pork barbecue in the Philippines. Back in the days, I buy barbecue at least three times a week from a stall situated beside the entrance gate of our village. Aside from the barbecue, I also love the dipping sauce. The sauce is a mixture of vinegar, whole peppercorn, red onions, and “siling labuyo” (birds eye chili). The sauce is placed in tall cylindrical glass jars (these are recycled coffee jars: Nescafe or Great Taste, probably). I soak the barbecue in the sauce for a good 5 minutes to absorb the flavor. Since the sauce jar is shared by everyone, I make sure to get my barbecue right after the stall opens. That way, I am confident that the sauce is still fresh.
